This week Maryam Taghavi casts a spell over Brian and Duncan. Will they recover? We don’t know. What we know is this… Taghavi plays and pulls codes at the edge of beauty and language. What about languages beyond languages?
In her work she uses and recreates a language of the occult practices derived from Islamic mysticism. Her sigils promise to evoke real and active metaphysical powers. These forms become channels, lovely and beyond form itself – concept to volition, presence to absence. The works are a wish invoked. The conversation a wish fulfilled. Will Brian and Duncan ever be the same?
