DUBAI.- Green Art Gallery
has announced the representation of Tehran-based artist Dorsa Asadi. Her solo exhibition, Strange Fruit, is currently on view at the Gallery until 29 July.
Dorsa Asadis ceramic sculptures combine local references, such as the aesthetics of colorful Iranian paintings and tiles, with contemporary subject matter such as gender, identity, environmental issues, and narratives that have shaped paradigms throughout history. She fabricates myths based on frequent motives in mythology across the world, for instance, the duality and superpowers of twins, fertility, sacrifice, and death, in order to make her narrative installations.
Born in 1992 in Tehran, Iran, Asadi obtained her MA in Painting (2018) and BA in Handicrafts (with a concentration on Ceramics) (2014) from the University of Tehran. She had her Residency at Helikon Art Center, Turkey (2019) and at Vayu Art and Mind Residency, Kashan, Iran (2022).
