DESCRIPTION: Paintings, Unframed, Oil color on canvas, video duration 8'
ARTIST STATEMENT: Bahareh and Farzaneh Safaranis work presciently considers presence and absence, taking on two age-old challenges for artists: how to depict air, and how to depict a living, breathing person who appears still. Whether showing air, gently billowing overlaid video curtains, enlivening the scene or metaphorically standing for winds of political change, or challenging breath itself, in the depiction of a still subject, the Safarani sisters treat current topics couched in art historical tropes.
