caraballo-farman’s work focuses on public rituals and collective acts exploring the relationship between individuals and groups, unit and structure, and how one enables or dissolves the other. By exploring the rituals of modernity as spaces of power and euphoria, as well as of the absurd and the tragic, caraballo-farman abstracts from the context to blur the line between the documentary and the aesthetic.
