Hamzianpour & Kia presents Extensions of a collapsing landscape, intubated futures featuring the art of Maryam Khosrovani & Kaveh Irani.  An opening art party will be held on Saturday, May 13, 2023 from 4-8pm. See below for more info about the artists.


The Hamzianpour & Kia opening art party celebrates these visual artists Maryam Khosrovani & Kaveh Irani who both studied arts in Iran before moving abroad and becoming part of the “diaspora,” relocated throughout the United States and Europe.

About Maryam Khosrovani

Khosrovani’s drawings (which at times can integrate weaving, folding, or pinholes) are challenging for the eye. They often playfully unfurl in series and sequences based on kinetic protocols and gravity laws. Her abstract hoses (connected to nothing in particular apart from themselves) and restless whirlpools, with their agility to cause us dizzy visions, appear at first glance as a conceptual art tool synthesizing time, space and body movements in one (transmutable) pattern or language. Behind their minimalistic claim for serendipity and profound stimuli for free movement and improvised directions, Khosrovani’s drawings elegantly attenuate the painstaking hours (days and nights) of work invested in shaping the infinitesimal veins and tubal ligations of the hose. Hence the positions taken by it and by Khosrovani’s work feel as much physical as conceptual.

About Kaveh Irani

Irani’s paintings of industrial tubes and cheap aluminum conduits, depicted with hyperrealism often striking to the eye, could be seen, at first glance, as vanitas or memento mori of our post-industrial world (in which these are progressively replaced by more ecological or digital devices and infrastructures). Either in Eastern or Western countries, these old fashioned conveyors and connectors remain in a lot of places as remnants or ruins of an almost vanished world (behind the walls, upon the ceilings and up on the roofs); that of the fossil energies and also of the omnipresence of cement in architecture and the everyday (hence the material and textural quality of the works which are acrylic or oil on cement-coated canvas).
