Peyman Hooshmandzadeh: His Excellency the Cock

Opening: Friday January 10, 2020 – Friday February 21, 2020

Gallery hours: 12-21 daily

Ag Galerie is pleased to present Peyman Hooshmandzadeh’s solo exhibition titled, “His Excellency the Cock”.
Hooshmandzadeh was still a few meters away from the brood of chicken when he notices their intense expressions of jealousy and aggression. He begins photographing them and after seeing the images, realizes that they appear to be almost human, expressing emotions and gestures which we assume are only reserved for us.
This series is a social commentary on our male-dominated society. However, it is also a critique of our human assumption that we are a higher being than other animals.
