Farah Al Qasimi
With a touch of humor, the work of Farah Al Qasimi (b. 1991, ARE) presents codes of communication and aesthetics in post-internet global culture. With a special interest in objects, interiors, and popular media, Al Qasimi invites viewers to think through their individual relationships to consumerism, economic growth, and national identity. With a focus on the Arabian Peninsula and the United States, her two countries of origin, she uses photography and video to witness moments of transcendence in banality, challenging the promises of material goods and the desires we place in them. C/O Berlin presents the artist’s first solo exhibition in Europe.
