Otto Zoo, in collaboration with Maria Carpaneto Albani, is pleased to announce Jump-Cut to Eyeline-Match: Forgetting the Sound of Her Voice, a solo exhibition of recent work by Ala Dehghan.
Composed from the media, detritus, and organic matter of Brooklyn, Tehran, and many places in between, Dehghan’s collages exhibit an impetus to dissect-physically, theoretically, and psychologically – a select collection of extant materials in order to provide a channel through which the sociopolitical, cultural, and mimetic forces that produced them may be projected outward through their own destruction, reconstruction, and reconfiguration.
Ala Dehghan was born in Tehran in 1982. Other recent solo exhibitions include The Upside-down Scenery at Kalfayan Galleries in Athens, and I can explain everything at Thomas Erben Gallery in New York. She has held residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and The Delfina Foundation. She received her MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Yale University in 2013. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
