MALACHI FARRELL A L'OEUVRE - LA FABRICATION DE "LA GEGENE"
The documentary Malachi Farrell à l'œuvre - La Fabrication de « La Gégène » (Malachi Farrell at work - The Making of « La Gégène ») retraces the steps involved in the making of La Gégène, a mixed media art work by Malachi Farrell and his team for the MAC/VAL museum in Vitry-sur-Seine (France) in 2007. Using movement, objects, images and sounds, La Gégène evokes the Algerian War and its related acts of violent torture as well as today's media deluge. Filmed in an experimental fashion, this documentary depicts the strength of this activist art work as it invites viewers to question social, political, historical, and contemporary events.
These events and the anguish portrayed by Malachi Farrell in his big installations incites us to categorize his work as activist art. Rare are artists today that make statements about historical issues that confront us with facts inspiring revolution and disgust. - Catherine Francblin
