Stamp Gallery Presents: Mirrored Re-Collection

posted on November 02, 2018

Mirrored Re-Collection
Sobia Ahmad + Sepideh Salehi
On view November 1 - December 15, 2018
Opening Reception: November 1, 5 - 7PM
Featuring an interactive exhibit concerning the recent 'Muslim ban'

In this exhibition, the artists examine issues related to national identity and belonging, cultural memory, the notion of home, and gender. They incorporate aspects of storytelling and weave their personal histories into broader cultural fabrics, the two often intersecting in difficult ways. Their work prompts us to consider: What is the relationship between personal narrative and larger structures of power? How do artists, especially women, use their work to navigate complex political and social terrains?

Sobia Ahmad
About the artist: Sobia Ahmad dissects how social, cultural, and political forces shape personal narratives and community experiences. A strong believer in the power of art for social change, Ahmad explores how our deeply intimate struggles of identity and belonging can inform larger conversations about fluidity of self, womanhood, and activism. She is currently serving as the 2018-2019 recipient of the Next Generation/Sanctuary Studio Fellowship at VisArts in Maryland. 

Sepideh Salehi
About the artist: By incorporating aspects of storytelling and letter writing, Salehi recollects the experiences she had growing up in post-1979 Tehran. She weaves personal narrative and cultural history into her work, reflecting on the ways in which she, and other women, navigated the shifting social and political landscapes. She also explores the idea of home and longing that she felt after leaving Tehran. Ultimately she uses her work to understand how her life was marked and shaped by these different events, and to reflect on them more generally.
