Marouf’s work occupies itself with queer intimacy, loss and memory. By understanding queer gestures and speech not only as behaviour, but as action, his work revolves around body and text. During his residency at K3 (season 22/23), he aims to develop a practice of fragmentation, with a focus on memory, its temporality and how memories are embodied through text, gesture and image.
