“AUTOMATIC ASSEMBLY ACTIONS”
14th of January – 14th of March 2013
Carbon 12 proudly presents Anahita Razmi’s solo exhibition ‘Automatic Assembly Actions’, opening on January 14th, 2013. Many worlds collide in Razmi’s work: cultural spheres, semantic frameworks, art history, politics, and some of them together. Through appropriation of heritage, symbols, and even other artists ideas, contexts are redefined and concepts juxtaposed. Razmi attacks these systems directly, honestly and relentlessly. Free from conceptual restraints; any surplus is discarded until only the message itself remains.
