3 Videos and few photo-based works of Amirali Ghasemi

Amirali Ghasemi, Curator / Media Artists and a founding member of New Media Society on Friday April 15, 2016 will exhibit few unseen/less seen projects such as Tehran Remixed: Party Series, Coffee-shop Ladies, White Reconstruction & Recent irritations together with three videos from the past years : Dancing Fan (1999), As Doctor prescribed (2009) and Browsing Photos from a Hard Disk (2012).

3 hand painted backdrops, from “Choose Your background” which were used in his ongoing photography project in public spaces and various galleries in Tehran, Istanbul, Berlin, Ottawa and Toronto (2006- 2012) are installed in the yard and living room. Two installations are as well presented in this spontaneous open studio: John’s Schoolmates, based a the last year book of American Collage in Tehran dated 1978 and the photo project Amirali’s Hard disk shown at Azad Gallery before in 2007, now becomes an participatory storytelling excuse dealing with collective memory, digital vs analog and experience of remembrance and forgetting at the same time as he signs and gives away the hundreds of photos used in his large installation before.
