American, b. 1978

In her cameraless photography and sculpture, Farrah Karapetian probes questions of photographic representation and reality and explores the relationship between different mediums. Karapetian produces mainly large-scale photograms that reproduce pictures of current events and other found imagery, particularly scenes and signs of protest, abstracting their forms in order to allow viewers’ to introduce new associative meanings. Addressing the photographic representation as a metaphor rather than a document, Karapetian presents the image as a constructed object, and allows the artist’s labor to assert itself. As she explains, “I’ve long been attracted to the marks people make on architecture to express their concerns, in part because the marks I make through photogramming express mine.”
