Flower Lenticular (Language and Prayer Stickers), 2020

Flower Lenticular (Language and Prayer Stickers) is a new photographic edition (of 100) by artist Farah Al Qasimi. The image shows a re-worked cover of a lenticular notebook, the kind used by the artist in her youth, covered with educational stickers showing English-Arabic translation and prayer instruction. In this recreation, the collaged elements suggest a suspended reality in which Al Qasimi’s childhood lives between two cultures. This Fundraising Edition is produced on occasion of Printed Matter’s participation in Frieze New York 2020 (via Frieze Viewing Room).
