until 29.07. | #3074ARTatBerlin | Galerie feinart berlin shows from 1st July 2021 the solo show Carried by Wind by the artist Maryam Motallebzadeh. Just as the artist was and is a traveler between Orient and Occident, her works are wanderers between cultural identities, languages, places and times
Whether painting, ink drawing on paper, installation or film, Maryam Motallebzadeh’s works of art can be understood as a kind of contemporary witnesses – created in the awareness of specific times in life and the influence of specific social and political circumstances that influence the artist’s perception and thinking. This is one of the reasons why traveling and encounters with other cultures have always been an important source of inspiration for finding artistic themes.
The exhibitions of the native Iranian often have the character of rooms that are filled, like diaries, with notes and with traces of thoughts, feelings and experiences from an eventful life. The artist, standing between Orient and Occident, has dealt intensively with topics such as home, identity, language and the relationship between I and nature.
The exhibition „Vom Wind getragen“ (engl. “Carried by the Wind”) is dedicated to the theme of fate and brings together works that are formally characterized by a particular lightness and dynamism. But also here one can quickly discover unsettling passages, be it where passionately spread red attacks soft white surfaces, be it where the motif of the veil opens up a complex field of meaning between hiding and uncovering, alienation and intimacy, rejection and temptation. For example, in the installation „Hinter dem Schleier“ (“Behind the Veil”), Maryam Motallebzadeh works with the symbolism that this motif possessed in ancient Egypt and ancient Greece. At that time the veil stood for the dividing line between life and death, between delusion and knowledge, death and rebirth.
Some of the works shown in the exhibition were created during the Corona pandemic and emphasize the current importance of questions about transience, uncertainty and, last but not least: love.
