Past Exhibition / Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian
January 27 – March 03, 2011
Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian opens the new season with a solo exhibition of new mirror mosaic works. This new series continues to explore the variable arrangement of geometric figures, this time with an emphasis on the physical movement of the shapes.
In her latest series, aptly titled Convertibles, her ornate works elevate this interplay to another level, creating formations that physically can be arranged in multiple variations. With the detailed intricacies of the cut mirror and her acute sense of modern aesthetics, Farmanfarmaian creates three-dimensional sculptures that challenge the basis of contemporary compositions. In her new work duplicating the selected figure either side by side, or facing each other, yet always connected, she creates a series of geometrical formations resulting in a number of kaleidoscopic variations
