Pandemic. Injections, mask, drip. 3’ x 8’

Farheen explores the power of perception to correlate the ongoing pandemic era. The installation – seemingly abstract, derives meaning as the viewing point varies. It is a literal translation of how art is all about perception, Farheen points out. 

The artist has used syringes, masks and drip bottles to envisage what the world is enduring right now. On a closer look, the installation is made up of discrete, meaningful elements about the act of striving by humanity today. The anamorphic nature of the installation is to resonate with the changing perspective about it by different viewers. The messages – of both discrete entities and overall installation is open to the mind of the viewer, says the artist.
