All Day Remediation: Works by Azadeh Tajpour based on found footage and archival photos (Multi-Day Event)
Remediation: Works by Azadeh Tajpour based on found footage and archival photos
Exhibit on view: February 4- March 11
Hollister Gallery
The space between us and the other. Azadeh Tajpour is interested in the ways we receive and perceive information, especially the lenses through which we look at “others” exploring the gray area between “us” and “other”. To this end, the artist uses video stills from an American Drone in Afghanistan as a source for drawings, stills from found video of the 2009-10 upheaval in Iran become the basis for paintings, and archival photos are layered on top of each other to highlight their original contradictory captions. Though informed by different locations and events, each of the works uses the combination of the original media and the intervention of the artist to examine the layers of mediation through which we experience what happens “elsewhere”.

Enjoy popcorn, drinks, and a free screening of Don Jon. In this movie, the main character Jon Martello objectifies everything in his life: his apartment, his car, his family, his church, and, of course, women. His buddies even call him Don Jon because of his ability to pull "10s" every weekend without fail. Yet even the finest flings don't compare to the transcendent bliss he achieves alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Dissatisfied, he embarks on a journey to find a more gratifying sex life, but ends up learning larger lessons of life and love through relationships with two very different women.
