War and Deception: Sam Shahsahabi

Curated by Nadia Kurd

Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday, January 16 at 7:30 p.m.

In War and Deception, artist Sam Shahsahabi presents us with complex narratives: the ecological destruction of land through bitumen extraction, the implications of embargos, and the true cost of collateral damage. Shahsahabi’s almost indexical observation of the media, combined with his own personal history informs his multi-disciplinary¬† practice. In his new body of work, Shahsahabi bridges such perceptions and unravels our day-to-day actions. From layered paintings to modified oil drums with drawing machines, as viewers, we are made to question our own relationships to distant wars and their immediate consequences.
