Farheen HaQ

Fray

Thursday, February 21 to Saturday, March 22, 2008

Opening reception:
Thursday, February 21, 2008, 7:00 – 9:00 pm

Farheen HaQ works with video, photo, and performance exploring the body in relation to gesture and ritual. For her exhibition Fray at Gallery TPW, HaQ presents two new video works, Homing and Remember.

A single channel video projection, Homing, follows the artist in a physical and psychological journey through vast landscapes, winding footpaths and a mysterious place of momentary congregation. With her characteristic meditative aesthetic, HaQ uses cinematic space to explore the singularity of one body amid many and the landscape as a larger body encompassing the whole. A second video triptych, Remember, intimately explores the contrast of separation and entanglement.
