Eddie Abd lives and works on the traditional lands of the Darug and Gundungurra peoples and pays her respects to their elders, past, present and emerging.
In her multi media practice she explores how diasporic cultural identities are constructed and consumed in various socio-political environments.
Her video and digital print works often feature composite characters inhabiting remixed spaces and engaging in heightened acts of identity performance.
Born in Lebanon in 1979, Eddie studied Fine Arts (Painting) at the Lebanese University.
After immigrating to Australia in 2001 she completed a Bachelor of Digital Media at the University of New South Wales (COFA).
She works in Western Sydney on arts projects with diverse communities and artists as a producer and facilitator.
