Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Talapasand’s practice is defined by collisions between old and new ways of making in addition to old and new forms of imagery. By staging encounters between the aesthetic conventions, techniques, and traditions of European and Islamic art, Talepasand’s work challenges the viewer to uncover (and thus confront) the tricks and abstractions that coalesce into effective forms of image making and propaganda, and reorder the various disciplinary processes that continue to shape our understanding of “Eastern” and “Western” subjecthood and aesthetics. The result is a sophisticated détournement of the assumptions associated with Iranian culture and the ways in which political propaganda often lives between the ancient demand for timelessness and the modern demand for immediacy.
