This project looks closely at Clarice Lispectre’s novel Agua Viva (1973). Known for her unconventional and innovative writing process which rearranges and transforms language into an emotionally charged sensory experience, her performance is taking place at the beginning and end of the world reveals the limitations of language.
Farrah’s large scale panel invites the viewer into a parallel world without hierarchies. Her metaphorical language takes the form of mycelium, roots, neurons, and ventilatory systems. Seemingly fragmented, often unnoticed, these cyclical ecosystems, uninhibited by preexisting syntax, communicate through energy, harmoniously participating in the dance of evolution, occupying and claiming space.
