LAST CHANCE Anahita Razmi: Take me to your Leader
An alien lands its spacecraft on the earth. It addresses the first thing it presumes to be an inhabitant of this planet, which is sometimes a stone, sometimes a cat, a bottle of champagne, a horse, a tree stump. The alien demands: Take me to your leader.
Anahita Razmi’s third solo exhibition at Carbon 12 brings together new video, print and sculptural works that proceed from her recent projects New EastEnders and THE FUTURE STATE. Razmi explores the complexities of (visual) language and power structures specifically in relation to contemporary Eastern cultures and politics. She plays with words and images – she follows their trajectories, mixes them up, takes them apart, charges and unloads them, explores their allure and studies the potential that lies in misunderstandings, and failed communication. Where do shifts and displacements occur? And how could they matter?
