Conversation Montreal Lyon
Initiated by curators Marthe Carrier and Chloé Grondeau, Galerie B-312 (Montreal) proposes Conversations, an exhibition project in which Lyon and Montreal meet to place emphasis on the art scenes in their respective cities; two territories, and most importantly two groups of artists benefiting from significant public recognition. This transatlantic proposal, which involves a plurality of media and a range of artists at different stages of their careers, will take place in two phases, in the spring of 2018 in Lyon and later in Montreal.

Language of programme, programme of language.
Starting with the notion of programme as explained by Karl Gestner, This research tries to look at the role of language and self-expression in creative coding and also how the language itself act as a programme.

Memory, communication, Spacetime
Poster system for the weekly conferences of Lyon fine arts school.
When designing a poster for an upcoming conference we are in a space-time between two conferences. The previous conference is passed but the memory of it is still present. We have the information for the next conference but waiting for it to happen.
Based on this view each poster is devided in two halves: Left half dedicated to previous conference and its documentation. Right half dedicated to next conference and its information.
By using screen print and Lettering on offset printed posters, each poster is unique.

Borges' Imaginary territories
The programme chooses randomly among 25 characters and print it on screen. Each character is associated with a line with a specific angle. The succession of the lines, forms imaginary territories.
Theatrically if the programme keeps on running forever, we would have all the existing and imaginary territories and texts.
This programme is then translated to a printed object. In the printing technic the notion of chance and accident is maintained.

The pleasure of decryption

ٍٍPhotography and Text
I get to the scene between two moments. Something has happened or something will happen. The space is filled with mental presence. Apart from the everyday objects, the absence and the imaginable narrations form the composition of the photos. As the elements of the photos refer us to a signified out of the frame, this can be a try to achieve a photographic language.
I translate my Farsi poetic texts to French by proposing two or three translations for some words. Making it possible for different possibilities of reading and different interpretations. This shows the impossibility of translation as well as its necessity (Walter Benjamin).
