    Información

     Galerie Perrotin is proud to present a solo show by Iranian artist Farhad Moshiri, “PICNIC”, from 26 February to 30 March 2013, for the first time at the Hong Kong gallery.

    After twelve years in Los Angeles, where he completed his training at the California Institute of the Arts, Farhad Moshiri currently lives and works between Paris and Tehran.

    Inspired by Pop Art, he has developed a remarkable hybrid visual language that draws simultaneously from both popular Iranian and Western cultures. He is also renowned for his ironic interpretations of the amalgamation of traditional Iranian forms and those of the consumerist and globalized popular cultures widespread across his country.

    For the exhibition “PICNIC”, Farhad Moshiri continues to draw upon the technique of embroidery for its ornamental qualities. Divided into two series, the exhibition displays seven new canvases as well as the impressive knives installation “Comfort”.

    All the works in the show are rich with symbolic references that mirror ambigui­ties and paradoxes in Moshiri’s work. For the show, Moshiri has distanced his work from pop culture, while continuing to use monochromatic bright colors. Indeed in the first room the works, both meticulous and detailed drawings, show scenes of common life, innocent activities, bucolic and dreamlike mo­ments that can all be preludes to a tale.

    In the second room the “Streetfighter” series is displayed, portraying a power­ful duality; two men embracing one another in a movement both aggressive and erotic. “Comfort”, an installation composed of knives; objects that by their very nature, present a poignant association with violence, that couldn’t be farther removed from the grace that distinguishes embroidery. The juxtaposi­tion of contrasting elements in the medium and the title “Comfort” - defined as a condition or feeling of pleasurable ease, well being, and contentment - is intrinsic to this new work, created specifically for the show.
