“Power and the poetry of money, the increasingly narrower latitude available for political action, the role of the self-generating war, the iciness of society, the execution of nature – these are the themes to which Malachi Farrell draws our eye, as well as to a bunch of cables, hoses, aluminum sheets, contraptions, and electronic parts everywhere, to which movement and sound are added. The result is loud and wild. The machinery is visible; it is meant to be visible. The artist reveals to us what holds the world together at its core, but he does so very much from the perspective of a rapper version of a French artist-intellectual who has declared his support for the principle of political responsibility to society. What is commonly called an “installation” in an artistic context here turns into the dramatization of a politically engaged Gesamtkunstwerk (synthesis of the arts) with a tendency to become a world machine, an artistic firework that does not shy away from a symbolic and mechanical explanation of the world. In truth, it is no longer an exhibition. What we see is a theater for robots, machines, automated puppets, and everyday objects set in motion, driven by pneumatic compressors, hydraulics, motors, and dancing mechanics. “Can’t you do anything domestic?” is not infrequently the reaction of collectors and curators, who like to instrumentalize artists as remote-control interior decorators or theory designers."

Malachi Farrell’ deals with major political and social issues, past and present, in a narrative mode.

He combines craft and ingenious technology to achieve a Gesamkunstwerk (synthesis of arts) through the use of sound, light, machines, everyday materials and articulated objects.

Crucial to the understanding : Farrell’s work is that his sculptures are not fixed objects, but spectacular, overwhelming, grotesque.
