Malachi Farrell at Work: The Making of La Gégène

2008 NR

This 2008 documentary chronicles the labors of bold Irish artist Malachi Farrell as he crafts his mechanical, mixed-media installation piece La Gégène, which uses robotic movement and nightmarish lighting to evoke the horrors of warfare and torture. From working in the machine shop to putting the finishing touches on the sculpture, Farrell exposes the progressive, politically charged soul that animates his work.
