“The letter that never arrived”- Bita Ghezelayagh Inauguration at Rose Issa Projects

On the 25th of April 2013 Lahd Gallery joined the opening of the Iranian artist Bita Ghezelayagh at the Rose Issa Projects .

Inspired by Persian art, Ghezelayagh created contemporary pieces made from colourful textiles; The outcome: Persian carpets characteristic of the region.

 “The history of Iran is full of letters from outspoken citizens warning their leaders of the consequences of their actions” she said.

“So the lives of many ordinary Iranians, myself included, are disjointed but also enriched through distance and displacement”.

‘The letter that never arrived’ reveals quite that! a contemporary theme in its traditional form .
