curated by:

Opening on March 30th and running through May 13th 2020 London based art dealer and curator Janet Rady will present Firouz FarmanFarmaian’s very latest body of work via a multiplatform dematerialized digital exhibition.

The exhibition will launch on Artsy on Monday 30th followed by a weeklong takeover of JRFA’s instagram account, starting Wednesday April 1st. FarmanFarmaian’s Tales of Confinement posts will include art talks, poetry readings, music performances and workshop visits.

Let's Get Lost ( Let them Send out Alarms ) was produced under the ongoing international lockdown and reflects on the idea of confinement, here brought into the heart of the artist's own practice.

Statement : ‘ I moved back into the Marbella workshop after six months in Morocco, where I had been on the road sourcing and producing the ‘Banners of the Unbanished’ monumental installation for the 1-54 African Art fair. A few days in, the world went into a lockdown. I decided to enforce the lockdown rule to the letter and only use media I had inside, at hand. Cutting off from outside supplies, I reflected on Rem Koolhaas’s idea of ‘Junkspace’ I had previously juggled with for my first London solo show at Mews 42 Gallery, down in 2013. I here worked around a monochromatic palette reusing recuperated furniture fabric, transforming my post-tribal lost forms into new forms - in order to express sentiment of confinement. The feeling of the outside from the inside. The freedom of inner vitality so present in all Persian poetry. ‘

The title of the exhibition "Let's Get Lost ( Let Them Send Out Alarms )” is taken from a Chet Baker track FarmanFarmaian had on while working and a throwback to the 1988 "Let's Get Lost" black and white film by fashion photographer Bruce Weber, documenting Chet Baker’s last days. It expresses the idea of the internal voyage, where true creative freedom lies.
