Galerie Peter Kilchmann presentsa special project with Shirana Shahbazi.
Shirana Shahbazi’s investigations on the perception of images and the boundaries of the photographic medium create space for an interplay of different photographic styles and subjects, that, in their heterogeneity, are not subjected to any hierarchical order. Her practice is characterized by a substantial diversity of production processes that are able to co-exist simultaneously with intriguing naturalness. It is a pictorial world of intangible surfaces, textures, materials and objects that confronts the viewer with his own consciousness as well as with the perception of reality. The viewer is encouraged to leave his usual point of view and approach the image on a new semantic level. These are image worlds that demand a longer discussion and open up thoughts.
