Out of Focus/Union, The Farjam Foundation’s New Exhibition features six international artists exploring new ways of seeing and sensing.
The Farjam Foundation has announced the launch of its new andenlightening ‘Out of Focus/Union’ exhibition. Launched on 19th March, the exhibition brings together eight works from six artists in one uniquely captivating and thought-provoking collection.
The invited artists are Chahine Khosravi, Owais Husein, Halim Al Karim, Imran Channa, Saad Qureshi and Afshan Daneshvar.
Originating from the Indian subcontinent, Iran and Iraq, the works of this talented group of international artists will unite to offer an insight into their neighbouring geopolitical divergences and convergences, while exploring the notions of perception, division, and unity.
The interrelated works selected for display aim to provide exhibition visitors with a profoundly personalized experience, as the intricate dynamic of every piece allows each individual to see something in it that other viewers may not.
The exhibition, which will occupy the Farjam Foundation’s entire gallery space in DIFC, signals the Foundation’s commitment to showcasing a diverse range of creative genres, and will offer visitors the opportunity to explore entirely new visual perceptions through works that embody intangibility, vagueness, impalpable and unfocused forms.
Guaranteed to be a reflective and visually striking encounter, you will be immersed in the artists’ meticulous efforts to transform the viewer’s gaze into a living, perpetually evolving experience in its own right. Through blurred images, peripheral visions, repetition and echoing effects, you will experience how the artists aim to move the course and system of vision from the eyes to the heart.
The works to be displayed are described as ‘enablers of a new era of apprehension, conveyors of subjectivity, and compressors of time’. They have been selected to harmonize with the mission of Art Dubai – to broaden the conversation about art and to showcase emerging art scenes.
You will benefit from a fascinating insight into how the artists use symbols, words, and sounds to alter their perceptions of the world to the visual space. Combining works from the Middle East and Indian subcontinent, the exhibition will convey a sense of how united cultures and collective consciousness is achieved across geopolitical boundaries.
Underlining the complementarity between these artists’ works, the Out of Focus/Union Exhibition will introduce their distinctive creative talents to a new audience and position them on a new, international stage. In doing so, it will envelop their shared identities and experiences in a sophisticated form of artistic expression and provide you with new insights into the notion of unity.
