It’s Not Easy Being Seen
Farah Al Qasimi’s It’s Not Easy Being Seen is a two-part commission that explores the invisible labour of women in the cycle of creation and consumption through the mediums of photography, performance and video. The first element presented in November 2016 was a billboard in The Yard at Alserkal Avenue; the second element presented in March 2017 includes a series of short videos that explore the effects of capitalism on the female body and reference the intimate relation between artistic labour and creative production.
13 March – 29 April 2017
Location: in front of Nadi Al Quoz
