Farid Rahimi's work explores the nature of the video as a medium, calling into question the rules of vision and our own role as spectators. In the case of F_____Q, Rahimi has put together a kind of minor narrative that is elusive and mysterious in tone, the potential fragment of a longer story. In a climate of suspended and subtle tension midway between the noir and the grotesque, the only passenger in an aeroplane is struck by the landscape outside the plane. Immediately afterwards he unexpectedly attacks the air hostess. The artist merely provides us with this single sequence, the fragment of a potential movie, leaving it open to subsequent development. Even the title of the video is a word that has not been fully spelled out; the artist leaves the spectator with the task of filling in the deliberate omission.
