Lawrie Shabibi

06 Nov 201715 Jan 2018

The solo show by the Iranian, New York based artist is the result of a personal research Pouyan conducted by taking a genetic ancestry test. She then decided to travel to the some of the thirty-three modern countries spread across Central Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Caucasus Mountains, Northern Europe and the British Isles. Pouyan spent two years obsessively researching distinctive historic architecture from these thirty-three countries with the aim of unearthing their most significant monuments and ‘constructing’ his own identity through the language of architecture.
