Amak Mahmoodian: Zanjir

Date: Saturday, Jan 18 - Sunday, Mar 22
Venue: Arnolfini

Bristol-based Amak Mahoodian exhibits a series of photographs taken in Iran and the UK highlighting connections and uncovering histories.

Mahmoodian presents the photographs interwoven with an imagined conversation between herself and 19th-century Persian princess Taj al-Saltenah, addressing loss, separation, family and homeland.

Building on a photobook of the same name, the exhibition will be the first complete gallery presentation of the project, bringing it into a gallery setting in a celebration of a major new voice in Bristol’s visual arts scene.

Jan 18-March 22, Arnolfini, Tue-Sun 11am-6pm. For more info, visit arnolfini.org.uk/whatson/zanjir-amak-mahmoodian
