Y. Z. Kami: Endless Prayers

About

Parasol unit is pleased to present the first UK solo exhibition of paintings, collages and photographs by the Persian born artist Y.Z. Kami. This diverse group of works has been created over a period of ten years and will be shown for the first time in this country. The most striking works in this exhibition are Kami's large and frontal painted portraits of ordinary people, each of whom fills entirely the canvas, often measuring three metres by two metres. Despite their imposing size and intense presence these portraits are neither flattering nor psychological; rather, they depict the subjects as they are, absorbed in their own world. The same frontal perspective and detachment is prevalent in Kami's monumental photographs of Islamic sites and architecture.
