the only thing i can really say in favor of my work is that i try to be
absolutely honest. this doesn't mean things aren't hidden; there are
things i curse myself for daily, hourly, that remain in the dark, that i
try to subvert, repress, rescind. but what is said is the truth as i find

caraballo-farman is a two person team composed of Abou Farman and Leonor Caraballo, working in video, installation, and photography since 2001.

Their work focuses on public ritual and collective acts exploring the relationship between individuals and groups, unit and structure, and ways in which one enables the other while also dissolving it.

Their work has been exhibited worldwide, including The Tate Modern (London), PS1/MOMA, The Project Gallery(NY), The Whitney ISP(NY), Artists Space, The Havana Biennial (Cuba), Cuenca Biennial (Ecuador), Impakt Festival (Netherlands). They have won several awards and grants including a Canada Council grant in Media Arts and The New York Community Trust.
