Black Friday

Fans of George A. Romero’s zombie flicks will appreciate Sophia Al-Maria’s anti-capitalist video installation, Black Friday. Borrowing effects from the post-apocalyptic genre, the artist presents hypnotic images of Qatari shopping malls accompanied by eerie voiceovers and a booming soundtrack.

She likens shopping centres to sacred temples, where the push and pull of American-style consumerism in the Gulf is played out.
