The book is from the exhibition by the Iranian-born British artist, Reza Aramesh, titled Them Who Dwell on the Earth, which ran from October 13 – 16, 2011.
In the exhibition at One Marylebone in London, Aramesh draws on the rich iconography of war. His sculptures are evocative, intense and intimate confrontations with individuals who, cast in the role of victim, offer the world their emotions for scrutiny and compassion.
Reza Aramesh was born in Awhaz, Iran in 1970. He left his homeland at the age of fifteen to go to London where he first achieved an undergraduate in chemistry, he then decided to redirect his life and completed a Master’s in Fine Art at the Goldsmith College in 1997. He currently lives and works in London. Reza Aramesh’s photographic, sculptural, video and performance works have received international acclaim. His work has been featured in solo shows in Dubai, Shanghai, Rabat as well as in London at the Royal Academy of Arts, the Barbican Centre, Tate Britain and at the ICA.
