Rhizome, AB GALLERY,January 2011, Emmenbrücke-Luzern, Switzerland

The solo exhibition "Rhizome" by Iranian artist Shahram Entekhabi (* 1963 in Borujerd/Tehran, lives and works in Berlin) takes its starting point from his involvement with the system of rules in the urban space and the complex of perception and self-perception from a migratory perspective that he deals with for more than ten years.

Beyond that, the show focuses on Entekhabi´s ionization of the cultural practice of veiling in Iran and his "Overpaintings" that he applies on fashion magazines, posters, advertisements, and postcards since 2001 in order to veil all female figures reproduced in those printed matters.

For the first time, the Entekhabi also presents a brand new body of work of drawings on paper, which transfers Entekhabi´s ever virulent reflection of socio-political matters into an associative and symbolical space.
