ARTIST TALK On Shahrzad and the Eternal Feminine with artist Sam Samiee

In this talk, artist Sam Samiee explores themes related to his new installation featured in the exhibition Nine Iranian Artists in London: THE SPARK IS YOU

In this talk, artist Sam Samiee explores themes related to his new installations, The Fabulous Theology of Koh-i-noor and The Fabulous Theology of Darya-i-noor, both 2019, created for the current exhibition at Parasol unit. Referencing the two largest diamonds in the world, Koh-i-noor and Darya-i-noor, Samiee deconstructs and contrasts these fetishized symbols of power and domination to Shahrzad and her sister Dinazad from One Thousand and One Nights.
