The work in این نیز بگذرد (This Too Shall Pass) could be described as a constructive failure of an attempt to address the desperate situation of migrants in Europe today, while also trying to untangle the problems of representation within photography. The work comes from a frustration with the inability to ever fully understand or communicate the history of another individual. It’s built on that inability, however that doesn’t exclude the possibility of identification or empathy but rather puts it to the test – in this case to expand the perception of what might at first appear to be a meaningless image.
The exhibition is on display March 24–April 2, 2017 at Galleri Monitor, Chalmersg. 4, Sweden. More information at the Galleri Monitor website.
This page will be updated with installation views and more info about the work shortly.
