“Do you remember the future? What will remain from that time to come?
What happens when that future vision collapses with the past?”
The Third Line presents “Saturns Neckless”, Laleh Khorramian‘s third solo show at the gallery. Laleh returns with a new body of work featuring dyed and painted fabrics, vestments, and monotype portraits of alien and guardian beings—symbolic of an untiring fascination with that which is otherworldly, the unnameable, and of a timeless inner territory. The exhibition is an homage to these beings—in their multiple forms as druids, seers, knowers, oracles, robots and space forms—and their proximity to alienation, anonymity and totemic divinity.
Born in 1974 in Tehran, Iran, Khorramian lives and works in New York. She studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and received her undergraduate degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and her MFA at Columbia University, New York. Laleh’s work is housed in several prominent collections including Saatchi Gallery, London, UK; Daman Collection, UAE and C-Collection, Principality of Liechtenstein.
