Project description

Aïda Vosoughi’s artistic practice maintains a close relationship with the literature and storytelling of the Middle East’s ancient cultures. In recent years, she has drawn considerable inspiration from the tales of Kalila and Dimna and sees many parallels between them and current socio-political situations.

At Skol, Vosoughi presents an exhibition of narrative paintings that explore power relationships transposed into a world of metaphor. At times almost abstract, her artworks revisit ancient tales in a wholly modern way and are tinged with a biting sense of humour.
