I'm glad to introduce my friend, Mona Najafizadeh.
During my residency time in Tehran, I met her and invited her to display her artworks in Beijing.
The exhibition is divided into two parts. For the first part, we will show documentary and short films that Mona made in recent years. The second part will be shown after the Chinese New Year. In this part ,we will show her latest video works, including the work she is creating specifically for this exhibition.
The image style of Mona is simple but powerful. She draws inspiration from daily life and she shoots films in a calmand restrained way. Neither applies the experimental method to show her profession nor overly pursues the narrativity of a story, she shows her honest and natural essence to the audience, as she always does to others.
In this very cold winter time, we warmly invite you to come to Arc Space. Iran black tea is ready for you. Enjoy our show, and enjoy your tea! Make yourself at home!
