“I was peeling eggplants that my father had prepared for my mother, while watching The Love Life of an Octopus, a movie by Jean Painlevé & Geneviève Hamon (1965). It felt like I had this creature in my hands. Because of this, I decided to go to the sea, the grey and cold North Sea close to our home in Oostende, to get seaweed.”
Transparency, the juxtaposition between mechanical and human action, the exploration of the fluidity and invasiveness of nature in contrast with controlled and impersonal computer drawing are researched in this new series of work that Shervin/e Sheikh Rezaei developed specially for this exhibition at KIOSK.
Shervin/e Sheikh Rezaei previously exhibited her works Ensemble and ART MEDITATION PROCESS at BLANCO (2020 and 2021) and at the exhibition Renaissance (2021), both in Ghent. Also in 2020 ENSEMBLE: An Architecture of the Inbetween, Shervin/e Sheikh Rezaei’s first monography was published by A.P.E. (Art Paper Editions).
