Franz Kaka is proud to bring to Papier a solo presentation of new and recent work by Iranian-Canadian artist Azadeh Elmizadeh. Inspired by folktales, Elmizadeh’s work explores the form of collective memory and its mutability through collage. Drawing upon cross-historical references, the notion of folk narrative is explored through the poetics of bricolage, where forms and figures remain continually open to transformative additions. This visual re-imagining, which repurposes previously conceived paintings and works on paper, enacts processes of revealing through concealment, invoking the gestural as an empathic mode of expression.
