MADRID.- From February 4 and until March 20, La
Fabrica Galeria presents the work by Shirin Neshat
, who will
show, at her first solo exhibition at La Fabrica Galeria, “Faezeh” (2008) and
the serie “Games of Desire” (2009).
Neshat’s work engages the viewer
through powerful images, sweeping scores, and evocations of human passions and
desires, while examining the social tropes that both stratify and unite. Neshat
pitches these dialectics of East/West, man/woman, and oppressor /oppressed, to
such a degree that these seemingly immutable polarities become malleable
locations for query.
