AFARIN SAJEDI: Printemps Parisien: Dorothy Circus Rome | Solo Show

23 May - 8 Jun 2015

Dorothy Circus Gallery proudly presents “Printemps Parisien”, a Special Event focused on the Teheran artist Afarin Sajedi.
Following the artist residency in Paris, Dorothy Circus Gallery will exhibit ten brand new artworks, mostly inks on paper, created by Sajedi during her stay at La Cité Internationale Des Arts, along with some unreleased drawings and a canvas from the Chef Offer series, “The Chef”.

In the Printemps Parisien series, Sajedi turns out all the contents and iconography of her recent production, but she adds a newfound narrative, inspired by the seductive and ironic wind of the global culture. Women are once again the actresses of a bizarre and surrealistic everyday life: knitting, fishing, travelling, cooking, taking care of everything that’s around them with an incorruptible patience and love.

Teasing us with the “Cinderella Complex”, the artist unmasks the contemporary romance’s fairy tale with a long sweet laugh, according to women’s awareness of their own roots and their possible future.
Next to the brand new artworks, nine beautiful graphites are displayed, among which an original version of The Crucifixion and the cat “Marvel”, icon of the Metamorphosis, which symbolizes reincarnation and rebirth.
This event will be followed by Afarin Sajedi’s first Italian solo exhibition, scheduled on March 2016, which will bring on the Italian stage a new body of work composed by 8 huge acrylic on canvas artworks.
