Soraya Sharghi
SETAREH is pleased to present the first exhibition of the artist Soraya Sharghi in Europe.
In her large-format paintings Sharghi depicts a mythology of the 21st century. Young women are staged in the role of a new type of heroine, drawing from the visual worlds of ancient Europe and oriental tales. A traditional iconography, hitherto with masculine connotations, experiences its re-figuration through the female body. These new heroines make it possible to reflect on archaic-utopian matriarchy in a contemporary context.
