Plastic Process

  • About
    The “Plastic processes” are the second category of images made by Farah. They were produced later, and are of a different nature. It seems that Abdallah Farah was caught out at his own game, he stopped being a simple, innocent observer reproducing real events, but turned into someone creating new destructions.
    He too shared in the war, inflicting new impacts to some images, sometimes accidentally, others willfully. He had various motives: aesthetic, psychological, speculative, political ones, for doing so. For these reasons, the relation of these images to reality seems more sophisticated, more personal, more complex…
