Mehrali Razaghmanesh: Allusions
Friday September 14, 2018 – Friday November 2, 2018
2018, 3:00 – 9:00 pm
You are cordially invited to attend the opening of the first solo exhibition of artist Mehrali Razaghmanesh (Tehran, 2983) titled Allusions on friday September 14, 2018 from 15:00 – 21:00.
This series is a continuation of the artist’s previous body of work in which he also photographed Tehran. Here the city has unexpectedly taken on a different guise during its annual, observance of the holy month of Muharram. Created using the gum bichromate* technique, these images concern themselves with presenting the aesthetics of the city during these ceremonies. Using Tehran’s disturbed soundscape and the fervor and furor it casts over and upon the city, the artist captures allusions devoid of workds and expressions. Contrary to previous examples of the depiction of Muharram and as far as possible, Razaghmanesh has attempted to diminish its referential aspects and instead bolden its compelling qualities.
