Hamishi Farah – Dog Heaven 2

Hamishi Farah’s new solo show, Dog Heaven 2: How sweet the wound of Jesus tastes, opens Friday 4th June at Fri Art Kunsthalle in Fribourg, Switzerland.

Dog Heaven 2 : How Sweet the Wound of Jesus Tastes is Hamishi Farahʼs first institutional exhibition and a sequel to the artistʼs first solo show in Europe in 2015 in Brussels. The exhibition gathers newly commissioned paintings and other recent works.

Hamishi Farah is a self-taught artist whose work in conceptual and figurative painting plays inside the production of a politics and philosophy of representation, with a particular focus on the libidinal afterlife of coloniality and itʼs permeation through contemporary art.

In 2020, Book Works published Farah’s graphic novel, Airport Love Theme. Drawings from this project also appear in the show. The book will be available to buy at the exhibition, and you can order it online here. For further information on the exhibition, please see the Fri Art Kunsthalle website.
