Exhibition title: The Ocean Can Be Yours
This lyrical exhibition, curated by Janet Rady Fine Arts, looks at the meeting of visual art and linguistics. It showcases four artists’ interpretations of international poetry through an Iranian lens, imbued with Persian visual culture. They explore the traditions of their shared Iranian heritage, but through very different means. London-based Afsoon has produced a sound installation of anonymous voices reciting poems by 12 poets. Ghalamdar, who now lives in Manchester, in the form of ‘calligraffiti’ blending Negar-Gari (Persian miniature drawing), graffiti and calligraphy. Iranian/British artist Jason Noushin, who now lives in Connecticut makes sculptural 2D collages, blending portraiture with English prose translated into handwritten Farsi. Finally, Paris-based Katayoun Rouhi incorporates her own poetry into her delicate allegorical paintings and drawings, laden with symbolism and avian imagery.
