Persian Calligraphy Opens a Door to Modern Art By NINA SIEGAL
Islamic Arts Magazine - The Deconstruction of Calligraphy
September 21, 2013
Pouran Jinchi is an Iranian-born, New York artist who borrows from her home culture's traditions of literature and calligraphy to pursue her own aesthetic explorations. Having been trained in traditional calligraphy, she finds the relation between words and forms, natural or non-objective, deeply intertwined. Pouran Jinchi is currently having her third solo show ‘The Blind Owl’ (September 18 - October 24, 2013) at The Third Line (Dubai). In this interview Pouran Jinchi shared with us her thoughts about her work and her current exhibition.
The National - The Iranian artist Pouran Jinchi takes dark inspiration from the writer Sadegh Hedayat
October 16, 2013
The solitary owl, which exists in the shadows and cares not to socialise even with its own kind, represents death in many cultures. In The Blind Owl, a novel written by Sadegh Hedayat in 1937, the symbol takes on an even darker level. When the opening line talks of the “sores in life that, like a canker, gnaw at the soul in solitude and diminish it”, it is difficult to imagine it going anywhere else. Yet, when Pouran Jinchi picked up the novel a few years ago, she decided to deconstruct it, turn it into visual art and focus on the spiritual message in the pessimistic plot, which is one of self-discovery.
