Avish Khebrehzadeh Distant Memory I

cm 231 x 306 ca.
Born and raised in a family of intellectuals in Tehran, Avish Khebrehzadeh studied mathematics and then moved to Rome in 1994 to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti. At the start of her career, the artist created figurative drawings on large sheets of paper, characterized by simple lines and frequently made use of video animation, which emphasized the reference to the fairy tales that are present in all her endeavors. In her works, the linearity of the drawing creates a calm and stable effect that is heightened by the slow rhythm of the images composing the animation. In 1997, she moved to Washington, D.C. where she still lives, to attend photography courses at the Corcoran College of Art. Melancholy underlies all her studies and reflects a biography in perennial movement where national identities blur and mix with memories and reminiscences. In "Distant Memory I", three drawings are tacked to the wall without any sort of frame and are used as screens where the video is projected. Each drawing is formed by an overlay of three sheets. On each sheet, a forest of trees has been sketched on a semi-circle marked by spreading some olive oil. The transparency makes it possible to view the images and creates an effect of perspective depth accentuated by the tree branches, while natural sounds accompany the video animation in the background.
