Abdu Allah s work primarily evolves from the interface of photography, the printed image and lens-based installation, more recently moving image has featured in his practice. This has enabled him to reposition values and ideologies pertaining to representation. Abdu Allah continues to broker disparate worlds through his practice best exemplified in The Garden of Eden 2003 with architect David Adjaye, Gold Finger 2007 with the late Joey Pyle from the British Mafia and more recently Double Pendulum 2011 featuring Jeanette Kwakye of Team GB, described as an exploration of breathing through training rituals of sports athletes.
