REFLETS D’ORIENT

ING BANK, GENEVA
AUGUST 2007

A dialogue between the beautiful and intricate geometric mirrorworks by Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian and The stunning textiles by French-Tunisian artist Rachid Koraichi at the headquarters of ING Bank in Geneva, Switzerland.

Monir Farmanfarmaian combines the ancient techniques of mirror mosaic with Islamic geometry to create a new aesthetic language.

Rachid Koraichi incorporates script, secret messages, talismanic symbols and graphism to create abstract images that he weaves in gold thread on silk panels or carpets.
