Amir-Hossein Zanjani

In “Applaud,” Amir-Hossein Zanjani represents dis-figures that are unrelated, while they are simultaneously entangled. Similar to his previous series, Zanjani uses bold colors to explore sociohistorical issues and contemporary militarism in the midst of a multitude of lonely bodies, whose identities have been destroyed and sunk into the background.
