Lead (Pb)

Lead (Pb) is a body of work that explores concepts of morality, integrity, and coming-of age experiences. Through a multidisciplinary approach this series reconstructs the events of a day in which young Taimaz sets out for hunting sparrows with a pellet gun. To recapture the psychological space of that day the artist spent several days in Panoche, California in search of a landscape which resembles that of his past in Karaj, Iran. The work combines personal archives, historical events, myths and tales taken from various geographical contexts in order to point to challenges present in our widening interconnectedness.
