e is a multidisciplinary performance that takes its roots from the notion that both Muslims and Jews come from the same Semitic DNA. Created in collaboration with British art star Oreet Ashery (www.oreetashery.net

Next, in Live Photo, 2Fik, working as both photographer and subject, single-handedly recreates de La Tour's famous painting Cheat with the Aces of Clubs in front of an audience. Through a dazzling display of technology and performance, 2Fik transforms himself into the multiple characters that make up this Baroque masterpiece and digitally produces a replica of the painting. Pure irreverent and subversive pleasure!
