Exhibition Review

Zeuzera Pyrina

At first glance, what we see at Babak Kazemi and Pargol Enaloo’s exhibition is recording a destruction from the inside out like what a worm does.

By choosing demolished spaces (whether the trees are to remind or the empty water source), using alternative photography techniques, central composition and minimal and clever use of the text, they have made a positive effort to express their idea. Though the cut down palm trees of Babak Kazemi (which somehow remind us of a warlike space) or the ones limited in structures (as examples of the human becoming a worm and demolishing whatever he has around) might be not interconnected to Inaloo’s works with water sources drowned in mud (which have been overturned and empty, longing for final demolition), however the printing texture of their works has made them relevant.
