Hossein Valamanesh: In Love

‘In Love’ is an extension of Hossein Valamanesh’s preoccupation with the emotion, existence and nature of being. The exhibition presents Enter (2019), a new architectural commission surrounding the audience in a field of colour, rhythm and sentiment through the repetition of the word eshg (love in Farsi). Also, in its South Australian debut, Passing (2014) is projected on opposite sides of the room, depicting both the oncoming and departing views of a meditative rail journey to evoke a sense of an ‘in-between-place’.
