Nairy Baghramian: Deformation

S.M.A.K., Ghent

NOW CLOSED

Baghramian (b.1971 in Isfahan, Iran; lives and works in Berlin) explores and reflects on the formal languages of both modernism and post-minimalism. The sculptor has become internationally known for making exhibitions by means of sculpture and site-responsive installations that play on the human body and its gestures, which are both revealing and dissembling. Her work marks boundaries, transitions and gaps in the museum and urban space, whereby she focuses on the relationship between body and building and refers to fashion and design, theatre and dance.
