Big Picture – The Double Life of Artifacts
Film Screening and Artist Talk with Shirin Sabahi
Shirin Sabahi’s work is centered around the life of artifacts and architecture, how objects are produced, used, perceived, remembered and forgotten. In her two films about «Matter and Mind» – an installation by Japanese artist Noriyuki Haraguchi commissioned in 1977 for the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art – Sabahi visits Haraguchi in Japan to learn about the history of the artwork («Borrowed Scenery») and subsequently invites him to Teheran to oversee the restoration of his work («Mouthful»).
The screening will be followed by a conversation with Shirin Sabahi and an apéro. Host is Yasmin Afschar, Art historian, curator at the Aargauer Kunsthaus.
This event will be held in English.
