Press release by Anahita - Arts of Asia
Dear ladies and gentlemen, on the occasion of our upcoming exhibition "Ancient Persia & Abstraction" at gallery Anahita - Arts of Asia, we cordially invite you to our exhibition opening on Thursday, 1 February 2018 from 7-9 pm at Schlüterstra.e 16, 10625 Berlin
The Berlin based gallery was founded in 2015 by Anahita Sadighi. Located in the western district of Berlin close to Savigny Platz, the gallery features antique arts of East Asia and the Middle East. The main themes are: Japanese Woodblock Prints, Chinese Furniture, East Asian Ceramics, Buddhist Art, Carpets and Textiles and Islamic Art.
'My aim is to liberate far eastern cultures from their negative and controversial reputation and to awaken again the mesmerisation for the oriental', says Anahita Sadighi.
Anahita Sadighi, born in Tehran and raised in Berlin, is at 27 the youngest Berlin art dealer (Weltkunst). 'Being a woman is still a handicap. Iranian society is more paradoxical than the local one, but accepting this and learning to see it as an opportunity is the great art', she explains. She sees it as a privilege to run a gallery and works with a network of girlfriends.
Anahita's vision is to turn the gallery into a Berlin cultural institution. The goal is to combine old-school art dealing with the possibilities of a new generation and to raise public awareness for Asian Art. 'I believe the 21st century belongs to Asia. Europe and America have had their time in the spotlight, and now Asia is due a renaissance', says Anahita Sadighi.
