Season Collection | Shilan Borhani

Shilan Borhani in her Season Collection combines various mediums, from video/sound and found negatives to layered collages and wood and gravestones. It is the 1st time that a part of this collection is being shown in Limited Access 8 at Aaran Projects. She writes:

From the ruins of the Bahman Cinema located in Sanandaj, I found a pile of negatives, after looking at the never-ending rolls of the negatives; I categorized them into various subjects. Among them, the photos of Iranian actresses attracted attention; Pictures of the stars that we‘ve been seeing on the movies screens from old days till now. Though, there is something more intimate emerging through the makeups, scarves, and veils: My present tense match their past and so it goes for the next generation.
