Description:

As part of the ongoing Visual Dialogue series,
Total Arts presents another collaborative project:
VISUAL DIALOGUES: The Book of Kings
16 March – 30 May 2019

Total Arts at the Courtyard, in its continuing series of Visual Dialogues, is privileged and proud to present two pillars of contemporary Art : Shirin Neshat and Fereydoun Ave, whom in their own styles and technique have worked on the BOOK OF KINGS.

The exhibition will be a dialogue between two classical figures and elements between both of their work. Both artists in their own way are searching for their proper complexed multi-layered identities. The exhibition will contain Fereydoun’s work from various series of Book of Kings that he has done over the years, mostly mix media & collage on paper (including the most recent series Rostam in Iranestan- 2018 & Rostam’s puzzles -2018) .

Along with the images of Masses & Patriot of Shirin’s Book of Kings series (2012-13), there are also her sketches, studies and tests for the projects, the journey which led to the final
presentation. Shirin Neshat best known for her videos, photographies and films and
Fereydoun Ave for his mix media works on paper.”

The BOOK OF KINGS is the epic poems written in the C10th by Ferdowsi in Tus compara-ble to Homer's Iliad. It deals with mythological persian archetypes, kings, lovers, demons, heroes.

Visual Dialogue is a continuing series between curator Fereydoun Ave and Total Arts at the Courtyard, juxtaposition of works & artists to create a Visual Dialogue. This exhibition will be the 10th in this series.
