Abdolreza Aminlari and Benjamin King

Longhouse Projects is pleased to present concurrent exhibitions of new works by Abdolreza Aminlari and Benjamin King.

Aminlari uses thread to draw on and into paper exploring physical as well as subconscious territory. His interest lies in the repetitive nature of the act of sewing and the domesticity that comes along with this process. There is a simultaneous duality of thoughtfulness and absentmindedness. The results are Structures and Landscapes reduced to abstract forms, apparently suspended in movement, void of any pictorial reality.

King’s pictures seem to fail as landscapes while succeeding as abstractions. He mimics the texture of forests, mountains, rivers by building up layers and washes of paint. The works are expressionistic, simultaneously polarizing abstraction and representation, while depicting scenes of undeterminable location and the lack of human presence.

On the evening of March 26th Longhouse Projects will present a special performance and installation: “Gesang an das noch namenlose Land.” A new composition for string trio by Katharina Rosenberger performed by the Mivos Quartet with tapestries by Abdolreza Aminlari.
