GearBox Gallery Special Inner Room Installation: The Weight of the Wall – Katayoun Bahrami
October 19 @ 12:00 pm - November 25 @ 5:00 pmFree
GearBox Gallery proudly presents a special inner room installation: The Weight of the Wall by jury winner Katayoun Bahrami, an Iranian multidisciplinary artist and curator living and working in the Bay Area. Her artistic interest focuses on the interaction between women’s bodies as targets/performers, affected by boundaries that act as catalysts between the two. Bahrami draws her inspiration from Iranian women’s history to create work that combines social practice, performance, and textile-based installation. She uses mixed-media pieces, installations, textiles, videos, and photographs to convey her ideas.
