Regular priceSale price
Sara Rahbar was born in 1976 and fled Iran, as a child with her family, during the aftermath of the Islamic Revolution and the beginning of the Iran-Iraq War. Rahbar pursued an interdisciplinary study degree in New York and also studied fine arts at London's Central St. Martins College of Art and design in 2005. From 2005 to 2010 she lived between Tehran and New York.
This is the first book to examine the practice of Sara Rahbar, including her early installations for the Queens Museum of Art, a photographic series made in Tehran, and the politically inspired textile-based works, all which use historically charged materials and forms. Design by Office of Paul Sahre and Essay by Catherine Grenier, adjunct director of Centre Pompidou, Paris.
One of the major characteristics of her work is to restore the dialogue between history and aesthetics. Her work is imbued with the magic that is inherent to the use of historically charged materials and forms.
