Mohammad Alfaraj (b. 1993) was born and raised in Al Hassa, a remote town in Saudi Arabia that has fed into his interest in nature and ecology and led him to a multidimensional practice, from video, photography, installations and writing, through which he presents a world on the verge of collapse. The core of his practice is his exploration of the relationship between forms and concepts, as a combination of a variety of elements is visible through superimposed stories in his photographic collages, regrouping and contrasting fiction and non-fiction subjects.
Alfaraj’s work has been shown at the Sharjah Art Foundation, Sharjah; Le murate Pac, Florence (2019); Athr Gallery, Jeddah (2018); 21,39 Jeddah Arts (2017, 2019); Saudi Film Festival, Dammam (2015) and Dubai International Film Festival (2014). Alfaraj worked as a programmer in both the Saudi Film Festival and the poetry house festival in Dammam.
