How do we as himans deal with displacement, culture shock and denial ? Historically this region has suffered or experienced the events which have led to its people immigrating without knowing beforehand the serious effects and consequences of their decision on their lives. In some cases drastic changes within a country can cause a sense of alienation even though these individuals still inhabit the same space.
Neither Here Nor There brings together the work of seven Iranian Artists – Peyman Houshmandzadeh, Nima Alizdeh, Shantia Zakerameli, Adel Younesi, Rosita Sharafjahan, Afshin Chizari and Hamed Sahihi – whom each express the abovementioned psycological reactions to the environment in which their subjects have suddenly founded themselves.
Exhibition continue trough Thursday, 19th of May, 2011
