Shahrzad : history by Shirana Shahbazi( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As in the Shahrzad collective's preceding projects, matters of geopolitical aesthetics are explored through idiosyncratic linkages of metonymy and allegory, textual poetics and iconic image, blunt content and overbearing design. Now, with their newest publication, the focus is on the mise-en-scène of contemporary historiography in today's Euroamerica. In the words of the collective: "These days, it seems that even in those prosperous, provincial environs we call the West, history is becoming a more complex affair than the Eurocentric teleology of 'how we ended up the joyous pinnacle of civilization, happy as pigs in shit.' History, along with other officious narratives, is now widely consumed with the same deference as a soap opera or a fashion magazine. And yet, throughout this apparent free-for-all, History as we know it persists." With this sourcebook at hand, Shahrzad presents its own commentary on the mysteriously tenacious aura of institutionalized histories, drawing on baroque ideology, discourse theory, botanics, the US top ten, art book traditions and more. Published and edited by Shahrzad (Shirana Shahbazi, Manuel Krebs, Tirdad Zolghadr) in collaboration with Emily Cohn-Miller. Awarded in the competition "The most beautiful Swiss books 2005"--Publisher

Shirana Shahbazi : then again by Shirana Shahbazi( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photography is always suspended between authenticity, construction and selection & a balancing act that is, to me, its quintessential justification as an artistic medium" Shirana Shahbazi Shirana Shahbazi adopts different approaches to photography in her work and explores genres as varied as the vanitas still-life, portraiture, landscape and colour abstraction. Shahbazi is just as mobile in her choice of media, for example commissioning carpet makers in her native Iran and billboard painters to copy her images. Often employing the slick look of commercial photography, Shahbazi's images are bright and accessible, yet at heart dispassionate and sceptical. Shirana Shahbazi was born in Tehran in 1974, moved to Germany in 1985 and today lives in Zurich ..."--Publisher description

Shirana Shahbazi - Monstera( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shirana Shahbazi's oeuvre reflects an ongoing interest in the relationship between images, their surfaces and their objecthood, as well as between the various artistic media and their apparent iconic qualities. Her pictures range from color-field abstractions to volatile holiday snapshots. The artist has assembled a population of images, which handles an equal weight as a dispersed as well as a coherent body of work. This showcases an impressive transitional quality, a mastery which Shirana Shahbazi hasn?t yet grown tired to pursue. From heavy frames to delicate litho-prints, her projects talk in fragments about the artist's genuine engagement with issues of representation as well as the presentation of images themselves. This publication pictures Shahbazi's recent work, taken to a compelling new level of abstraction, culminating in the free disposition of colors and geometric forms. Shahbazi stages these geometrical forms, not on a computer screen, but by arranging and staging real geometric bodies of color in her studio?as though for a still life?and by then photographing them from different perspectives. Her production style is pivotal not only for the brilliance of color; it is shining through in delicate details such as double exposures or intriguing effects of depth. Each composition allows for nuanced readings, oscillating between the two and three-dimensional, between the representational and nonrepresentational
