Date: Apr 20, 2016 - May 24, 2016

Original post


Gypsum is thrilled to present Berlin-based Setareh Shahbazi’s second solo show at Gypsum Gallery. Her new works deconstruct photographs by cutting, peeling, bending and un-layering them in Photoshop until she hits the core of the medium, the background layer, thus setting free an invisible pattern. Through a formal reflection on the medium, the photographic subject breaks off from presentation towards more abstracted twins and duplicates, dot.tiff dot.jpg dot.pdf., without losing the ghostly trace of its origin.
