Somewhere Around Here

18 August - 1 September 2023
SARAI Gallery (SARADIPOUR) is pleased to present Parham Peyvandi's new exhibition called Somewhere Around Here. Marking Peyvandi's second solo exhibition at SARAI Gallery, Somewhere Around Here is due to open on August 18 and it will continue to run until September 1, 2023.
While still focused on the urban environment as its main subject. Somewhere Around Here is a clear departure from earlier works by Parham Peyvandi (b. 1989, Iran), including his previous series Gazing Through the City, where the artist presented reimagined vistas by altering familiar skylines of his city of residence, Tehran, and surrounding them with lush landscapes reminiscent of his childhood home. Here, he "stands face-to-face with the city", looking directly into its edges and niches and transferring his process of observation onto canvas and paper.
