The Running Horse will present a solo exhibition covering several aspects of the practice of Maryam Amini, a notable growing Iranian artist whose multifarious body of work reflects with grace the dark yet delightful nature of the “human”.
The interactive series of works produced for the exhibition entitled “The Manner of Silence” is a reconciled assemblage of rganic drawings, paintings, light-box installations, resembling a cabinet of curiosities. These works show objectified and faithful reproductions of nature, animals, and historical moments, all floating in a gauzy white field and inciting our gaze to discover a dreamy environment that transports the viewer into her subconscious, automated landscapes. Amini, in her usual manner uses paper and canvas as an intimate journal creating “a language to scream while whispering”, as Fereydoun Ave puts it, in a ountry where otherwise her voice would be stifled. It is an expression of a passionate self in restrained and calm codes. (Excerpts from text Written by Lea Sednaoui for gallery publication)
