Soot, Fog, Soil

Majid Biglari

Majid Biglari tends to conceal his visual codes from the audience, encouraging them to go through a rather demanding process to make sense of it all. In “Soot, Fog, Soil,” he has assumed a similar approach, as if by sealing old immigration documents of a family on tin cans and the imaginary maps of a fictional haven, he seeks to present his audience with new questions.
