Ibraaz: Breaking Glass (April 2013)
BREAKING GLASS: Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian in conversation with Stephanie Bailey
A legacy has developed around Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian. It is rooted in the appropriation of the traditional Iranian art of reverse mirror painting and mirror mosaics – Aineh-Kari – to produce new and modern forms guided by the universal laws of geometry. In this interview, conducted by Stephanie Bailey (Managing Editor of Ibraaz) on the opening day of her survey exhibition at The Third Line (18th March to 19th April 2013), Farmanfarmaian discusses her life and work.
