We are very pleased to announce that Iranian/Paris based artists Bahar Samadi and Navid Salajegheh will occupy The Guesthouse, Cork for a three week residency from the 7th of November 2014 concluding with an exhibition on the 30th.
“Non-peaceful Coexistence of Numbers and Dates” is the title of the project proposed by Bahar (filmmaker) and Navid (visual artist). A series of found-materials (still photographs and film) will be transformed and composed into a complex installation that will mysteriously haunt with themes of loss and death. The artists will open this exhibition with a special, once-off performance.
This is the second collaboration between EFS and The Guesthouse, the first being with filmmaker Jann Clavadetscher in 2013. This was part of an event called “SeeSound”, a day of film/sound screenings, performance and installations by members of EFS and friends at the Cork Film Centre Gallery as part of IndieCork Film Festival, curated by Maximilian Le Cain. Once again, we would like to thank the Guesthouse for their continued support of our work.
A selection of Bahar’s shorts will screen as part of the “Iranian Underground Programme” in Cork Film Festival on 8th & 9th of November. (Details: HERE & HERE)
Her work will also screen as part of the second EFS programme of films at Temple Bar Gallery & Studios on November 24th. (Details: HERE)
