A solo exhibition of Shiva Ahmadi‘s video work Lotus will be on display at the Charles B. Wang Center, Stony Brook University, New York from Sept. 18, 2014 — Jan. 10, 2015.
Lotus is a video animation by the Iranian artist Shiva Ahmadi, commissioned by the Asia Society Museum in New York City and inspired by two statues of the Buddha held in their collection. Ahmadi’s work reflects on the subjects of social trauma and religious and economic corruption in Iran and the surrounding region, and draws on her experience of the destruction and chaos wrought by the Iraq War (2003 – 2011).
