AFARIN SAJEDI: Bon Appétit: Dorothy Circus Rome | Solo Show

13 Oct - 11 Nov 2023
Embark on a thought-provoking journey as we delve into the profound artistic expression of Afarin Sajedi, DCG proudly represented Iranian painter who fearlessly explores the theme of freedom. In her latest body of work, Sajedi's bold and powerful paintings serve as poignant symbols of the ongoing fight against violence inflicted upon women. With unwavering determination, she adorns her female protagonists with resilience and pride, infusing them with love and hope while refusing to conceal their strength or mask their fears.
Just like an open diary laid bare on a table, Sajedi's new series of large canvases acts as a visual chronicle, tracing the arduous path towards freedom of expression and the quest for justice that the contemporary world owes to womankind. For far too long, women have been engaged in a relentless struggle to break free from silence and reclaim the stolen moments from their lives. Sajedi's evocative artworks pay homage to their indomitable spirit and serve as a rallying cry for change.
With the conclusion of the 2023 program, we reflect on a year defined by the paramount themes of freedom of expression, choice, and style. These concepts serve as the fundamental pillars underlying our commitment to artistic research that embraces both value and meaning. As we bid farewell to this transformative year, we are reminded once again of the profound significance of art in shaping our understanding of the world and advocating for societal progress.
Join us as we celebrate the enduring power of art to ignite conversations, challenge norms, and inspire collective action. Through Sajedi's visually arresting creations, we are reminded of the importance of fostering a society that embraces equality, amplifies the voices of the marginalized, and champions the rights and freedom of all. Together, let us forge a future where every individual can flourish and reclaim their stolen time, and where art continues to serve as a beacon of hope and catalyst for change.
