"Malachi Farrell: Nothing Domestic"
2003-06-11 until 2003-08-31
Sprengel Museum
Hannover, , DE

Malachi Farrell (born in 1970 in Dublin) thrives on taking an aggressive and / or ironic view of issues of violence in society or in politics. As part of our 'Interventions' series, he will show his installation 'Nothing Domestic', which deals with the international trade in weapons as well as touching on the American government's role in the war in Iraq. The exhibition is made possible with support from the AFAA - Bureau des arts plastique Allemagne and the French embassy.

Known for his kinetic installations of infernal machines and robot figures, Malachi Farrell creates performing sculptures: tanks that attack space, Christmas trees that spin and smoke, singing and dancing potatoes, and Nike-shod robots resisting arrest. Taking advantage of the familiar associations Farrell’s interactive installations employ technology to expose and comprehend human idiosyncracies in a way that speaks both to children and adult viewers.
