Malachi Farrell

Gaz Killer

Malachi Farrell

This kinetic installation in the courtyard displays Malachi Farrell’s signature style – recycled objects combine with high technology to create an absurdist form of social criticism. In the case of Gaz Killer, gas masks have been transformed into half charming, half threatening dogs’ heads surmounting up-turned metal buckets. A frenetic choreography is set in motion by the movement of the public, drawing the spectator into the idiosyncratic space created by the artist. “Within the space of a Farrell installation, globalisation is imaged as a concoction of ridiculous contraptions gone mad” Artintelligence.  Born in Dublin in 1970, Malachi Farrell lives and works in Paris and New York.
