Born in 1993 in Al Hassa, Saudi Arabia. Lives and works in Al Hassa.
Mohammed Al Faraj creates multimedia installation works that combine fictional and nonfictional source material to poetically parse contemporary social and environmental issues. In collaged juxtapositions of news clips from information sources of varying integrity and original footage he often captures in his home city of Al Hassa, Al Faraj reveals glaring hypocrisies and injustices within public perceptions of topics like ecological conservation and citizenship, and the role of media in desensitizing audiences to these contradictions. Through collaborations with other local artists and activists, Al Faraj contributes to a multidimensional visual and narrative output that documents changes and tensions between urban and undeveloped environments, and explores possibilities for coexistence between nature and humankind.
