The Experience of Dishevelment

Majid Biglari

In Majid Biglari’s work, hiding visual codes and gradually injecting essential questions into the audience’s mind leads to the obfuscation of the border between truth and reality. In “Soot, Fog, Soil,” the audience joins the artist in the questioning process: Can one find a real relationship between himself and a dreamland in the mind through migration? Or, is possible to wash away the traces of dirt from a land by simply leaving it? Much like his peers, who gather recollections from fragments of events, with his pasting and assemblages made of recycled materials, he examines war, technology, and the bleak fate that discovery of oil has brought upon the Middle East.
