About

In this talk, artist Sam Samiee explores themes related to his new installations, The Fabulous Theology of Koh-i-noor and The Fabulous Theology of Darya-i-noor, both 2019, created for the current exhibition at Parasol unit. Referencing the two largest diamonds in the world, Koh-i-noor and Darya-i-noor, Samiee deconstructs and contrasts these fetishized symbols of power and domination to Shahrzad and her sister Dinazad from One Thousand and One Nights.
