Airport Love Theme
'Airport Love Theme' is a graphic novel set on two airplanes and in detention at Los Angeles airport, recalling the absurd exchanges that once took place between US border security officers, an artist held and interrogated under suspicion while travelling to an art fair, and fellow passenger-detainees. Farah’s debut book explores the promise of mobility offered by the international art world, and how that promise can fail outrageously. Suspense and disorientation play out in subtle ways, encouraging self-questioning on the part of readers given joint responsibility for making sense of troubling events.
