Roxy Farhat works between performance and film, between art and music, between politics and the aesthetics of the commercial sphere. Questioning these established identities, Farhat has developed an artistic language that expertly adapts itself to several situations: the creation of parallel subjects, the theatrical form, the music video as a work of artistic value.
The exhibition at Index is the first major solo exhibition of the artist in Sweden and internationally. It engages with her uses of performativity between and beyond video, performance and collaborative practice, operating in several fields at the same time.
Presenting work from the past decade of the artists’ career, this retrospective plays out over ten screens in the Index exhibition space and shares Farhat’s extensive body of work to Index audiences.
