To Remember: Mix media exhibition concludes


Remembrance is what makes memories alive throughout life. A mix-media exhibition ‘Space-A’ by Iranian artists Farshid Davoodi, Maryam Ashkanian and Sima Shahmoradi began on August 28 at Siddhartha Art Gallery, Baber Mahal Revisited.

In the exhibition, the artists majorly focused on expressing the history of Iran. Such as the history that includes personal stories and their fates living in Iran; the history that consists of their social structures and institutions. The strong intuition about in absence of word, what people will be remembered by is what remains of them has been strongly presented by the artists.

Apart from acrylic work, but the use of newspaper work and fabric work to bring tighter culture and the media through which culture is promoted.

As per Sima one of the artist, the meaning behind her work was to show that the human soul is a paradox, as at once ‘suspended’ or unconscious and terribly ‘awakened’ at another point.  

The main attraction in artworks are the way the picture could be understood in different dimensions if one looks at in either close-up or with their camera. Paintings that looked like a cup or a sketch of a girl from afar, turns into portrayal of bloodshed and battlefield when looked closely.

Summing up Iran at a glance: pretty from outside but you will find conflicts and scars the closer and deeper you look at it.

The exhibition concludes as of September 4.
