Farah Al Qasimi

Farah Al Qasimi (born 1991 in Abu Dhabi, lives and works between Dubai and Brooklyn) is a photographer, video and performance artist who presents her work in vibrant and detailed installations. Employing photography as a tool of intimate inquiry into how spaces and subjectivities inflect each other, Al Qasimi's hyper-colourised photographs frame the mundane with explosive beauty, humorous indifference and transgressive social commentary. In doing so, she practices with an understanding of social media's conflation with youth culture and its re-purposing, by artists and individuals alike, as a tool for complicating the medium of photography, its relationship to self-creation, and the consequences of our present socio-technological condition on the re-configuration of the public and private sphere.
