Scripted Selves: Sutures of Signs and Symbols
January 25 @ 11:00 am - February 29 @ 7:00 pm
Latitude 28 presents ‘Scripted Selves: Sutures of Signs and Symbols’, a solo show by Iran-based artist Zahra Yazdani and curated by Manan Shah. The show is on till 29th February 2024.
Under the orchestrated settings of the private spaces, the photographic works by Zahra Yazdani in the exhibition probes the human body through the effect of distortion and layers. The asymmetry reimagines the points of location and registration of the dominant scripts to let the human body have its agency. The curatorial approach takes into account the scale of the photographs in order to cajole the viewer to pause and ponder: remap the body as through the eye of an active assimilator and associate. To break the monotony of the space, an eclectic visual appeal anchored by the encases and organic drapes, accentuates a porous experience to see the set of photographs in its entirety and individually. The curatorial approach strategically attempts to divide the space through drapes – evoking a psychological bifurcation or an in-between space – synonymous with the traces of lamina of a body. Towards this end, the exhibition succinctly takes references from a book produced by the artist. Yet is attentive to avoid a similar iteration through the display.
