Landscape has long been considered a genre of art making separate from othersportraiture, history, the nude. Not so in the performances, videos and installations of Farah Salem, where landscape is revealed in all of its intricate connections. Mirage emulates the Kuwaiti childrens game Bar/Bahar, in which players shift their body position based on which word is called outbar means desert, bahar means seaonly here it is Salems body that is being transformed, and with the added elements of actual sand and water, ceremoniously poured into her voluminous skirts by the audience. In Caustic, Salem wanders the Arizona scrublands in a black abaya, then uses a bucket of bleach to transform it into something more at one with the dusty hills. The five painted abayas she and other performers wear in Disclosed have been transformed to better match their environments, too: a ship for the ocean, fronds for a palm grove, small yellow flowers for the desert. The bodythe female body, at leastand its surroundings are one.
