Shahrzad Changalvaee and Constanza Alarcón Tennen are presenting joint exhibition, Future Remnants of a Missing Word, at New York’s Meyohas, opening April 1 and running to June 1.
The press release describes the ‘no-place’ of utopia as a place “where distant voices meet and fertilize”. It tells of the coming together of Chilean singer Victor Jara and Iranian poet Ahmad Shamloo who entered Jara’s world by grace without encounter, and translated some of her songs, which, years later connected Iranian-born Changalvaee and Chilean-born Tennen.
Future Remnants of a Missing Word will look at how the memory of brutality in history breathes when society does not face it, and that while histories do not mirror each other, analogies can recall one another.
Meyohas gallery is run by artist Sarah Meyohas.
