MOHSSIAH was originally meant to be a black and white short-length movie about 'Lust', as part of a film-making workshop called 'No Excuses!' in South Acton (Sep-Nov 2009).
It is now a photo series as well as Mohamed-El-Haddi's first experiment with film.
The main objective of the film-making project (organised by the Acton Community Centre and Theatre Studio West) was to involve local residents from South Acton and encourage them to express themselves artistically through script-writing, film directing and acting. The topic of the project was the Seven Deadly Sins.
Mohamed-El-Haddi recorded scenes illustrating 'Lust' and wrote a script based on 'Sloth'.
The agenda behind MOHSSIAH was to question and debunk the very iconic representation of the Christ within the realm of fiction.
As a companion to the filmic piece, Mohamed-El-Haddi produced a photo series.
The short film and the photographs allow the viewer to take in some suggested guidance throughout the artist's creative process and conceptual journey.
