Farah Ossouli: Abu Dhabi Art 2022
Dastan had originally planned a different presentation for the fair that included showcasing works by five Iranian artists, Behjat Sadr (1924-2008), Mohsen Vaziri-Moghaddam (1924-2018), Koorosh Shishegaran (b. 1945), Mohammad-Hossein Emad (b. 1957), and Pooya Aryanpour (b. 1971). However, the recent events in Iran necessitated a shift of perspective, and consulting the gallery’s programming team as well as the artists and the estates of the original presentation, Dastan has decided to present an inspiring presentation by Farah Ossouli, whose pieces from “Listen! Do You Hear the Blowing of Darkness?” (2012) and “Wounded Virtue” (2015) series are prime examples of thought-provoking portrayals of the history of violence and the quest for freedom.
