Artist, Farah Al Qasimi is set to present her latest exhibition entitled 'Coming Up Roses' at Dubai based gallery, The Third Line. Known for her conceptual work that's centred around illogical and misplaced feelings of nostalgia and fear, Farah bases herself between Dubai and New York. The exhibition is said to be "Exploring ideals of beauty, femininity and desire, the new series of photographs and video develops a performative vocabulary exploring the universal quest for independence, and the unease of women entering adulthood." Restraining herself from the idealistic image of societies expectations, Al Qasimi showcases a new approach to the boundary pushing world of beauty through her innovative images. Which leads to her latest solo exhibition that consists of both still and moving imagery, showcasing the struggles of the youth and their transaction into adulthood.
Coming Up Roses will be open from June 15th until July 16th 2016 at The Third Line Gallery at Serkal Avenue, Dubai.
