Morehshin Allahyari @ Photographers Gallery

5 May 2017 - 16 July 2017

She Who Sees the Unknown is the first UK solo exhibition by Iranian-American artist Morehshin Allahyari.
Researching dark goddesses, monstrous and Jinn female figures of Middle-Eastern origin, Allahyari’s work for the Media Wall ( a commission) considers the effects of digital colonialism and refiguring as a feminist practice, while devising a narrative through magic and poetic-speculative storytelling, re-appropriation of traditional mythologies, collaging, meshing, scanning, and archiving.
Her work deals with the political, social, and cultural contradictions we face every day. She thinks about technology as a philosophical toolset to reflect on objects and as a poetic means to document our personal and collective life struggles in the 21st century.
