The Present is unfolding
21st October – 5th December
Marjan Fahimi’s solo exhibition at Domus marks a renewed collaboration with the gallery presenting her ever-evolving creative process.
Domus Art Gallery is pleased to welcome Marjan Fahimi’s second exhibition entitled “Crossover”, from the 21st of October till the 5th of December 2023.
The show describes a period of great personal and professional changes for the artist who has shifted from pure abstract forms to the integration of figurative. Curated by Giulia Coccia, the project aims to enhance Marjan’s personal journey from her country of origins – Iran -to the cultural experience collected in Italy where she has lived for the past 22 years. Her creative quest translates into a cross contamination between past and present, abstract and figurative, which seamlessly blend into each other making a CROSSOVER.
As Marjan Fahimi states: “At the beginning I was inspired by the urban views of my hometown, Tehran. Later on, after moving to the north suburbs of Rome, I explored the natural landscapes of the countryside. Only recently, I realized that the canvas was showing me more and more figures and faces at an embryonic stage floating in the atmosphere of the paintings and inviting me to give them shape.”, she explains.
It was then that she forged an even stronger connection with the viewers, as their engaging reading of outlining figures, faces, animals and landscapes within the picture convinced her to explore these random events. “Everyone who faces the work brings into it his own sensitivity, his personal and cultural experience, so that every single interaction becomes a new execution.”, she says. Through the viewer’s eye the work is reborn to an ever-changing original life and turns into an OPEN WORK or MOVING WORK.
This new approach has clearly changed the late stage of her artistic production until now strongly characterized by abstract, that viewers and collectors have associated her work with over time. The “Crossover” exhibition encapsulates all this transitional process defying her mature artistic signature.
