"While Derrida used 'trace' as a criticism of Modernism, Farmaian has appropriated the concept to invite the viewer to explore the history and variety of Berber culture through his use of authentic mythology and symbols"

This exhibition mirrors the Trace of past symbols, ceremeonies, rites of passage of eternal Tribes, such as the North African Amazigh into a new body of work that follows the Totem series shown IN 2018 under ‘Poetry of the Tribe’ in NYC. Tribalism as a passer of memory, as vehicule of Trace. The Talisman series will turn to the sacred. The ceremonial transfigurations of ritual magic, of Talismanic signs. Those of Fertility, those of Fortune.
