BORDERS: Solo exhibit - Farnoush Amini
Sculptural installation by multi-disciplinary London based artist Farnoush Amini
This work is a reference to the moment of transition which could be geographical, physical or mental. Whilst going through these different stages in life we leave some parts of ourselves behind. We could get trapped and stranded in these geographical and mental borders and become oblivious to what is awaiting us on the other side.
The knots used in this work represent a customary act in Iran when visiting holy shrines. The pilgrim ties a piece of shrug to the shrine whilst saying a prayer. The knot is a dead end, an impasse.
