An exhibition by Azin Feizabadi within the frame of the program UP (Unsustainable Privileges), curated by Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung and Solvej Helweg Ovesen.

About

The exhibition program UP (Unsustainable Privileges) continues in 2018 with a solo exhibition by filmmaker and artist Azin Feizabadi. The presented artworks stem from the long-term project called A COLLECTIVE MEMORY, which has provided since 2009 a research and production framework within which Feizabadi deals with alternative forms of historiography. This discourse is picked up in cinematic and installation means at Galerie Wedding and placed in relation to questions of the construction of time and identity; questions that are also addressed in Feizabadis new and narrative film »Uchronia«. It is an attempt to question the understanding of cultural and national identity from its purely historical justification. What are alternative forms of historiography that are used outside of institutional and ideological prescriptions?

Feizabadi’s aim is to find ways to encapsulate stories and depict them through the use of poetic and experimental expressions while renouncing scientific and ideological means. Like many artists, poets, and thinkers before him, Feizabadi speculates on the possible end of Layla and Majnun’s love affair, in the sense of a continuation of the classical, oriental history of Arab origin. In addition, the German actress Brigitte Mira is present in multiple ways in the newly produced work by Feizabadis at Galerie Wedding.
