Untitled – Shohreh Mehran

January 19 – February 16, 2024

Why hast thou suddenly cast away thy veil?

Shohreh Mehran has always born witness to our city. She used to veil and hide the corners of  Tehran, so that we wouldimagine what we could not see, and thus see it, through the prism of imagination, more sharply. 

This time, however, the shrouds are lifted. The subject, slipping yet assertive, is now everything in the frame. It is the city that has disappeared. What has this city done to us to deserve this erasure?
