FARHAD AHRARNIA:
CANARY IN A COAL MINE

ROSE ISSA PROJECTS, LONDON
18 JANUARY–25 FEBRUARY 2012

This is Ahrarnia’s second solo show with Rose Issa Projects, and has some echoes of the first, "Stitched" (2008), in that it explores the idea of being “stitched up”. For "Canary in a Coal Mine" he has created larger-format works that combine embroidery, digital photography, sewing needles, silver-bronze shovels and dustpans.
