MALIHEH AFNAN: PAYSAGES, PERSONNAGES, ECRITURES

LEIGHTON HOUSE MUSEUM, LONDON
15–27 MARCH 1993

Written paintings in a reinvented antique alphabet; mysterious landscapes of violated cities, past and present; people with no land and no country transformed into earth itself...

Born in Haifa of a Persian family, the Paris-based artist Maliheh Afnan produces enigmatic works that depict the scars and the memories of a solitary journey and of a life continually disrupted by forced exile.
