Work I'm looking at

Tannaz Farsi
Hands Remain Still
36’x 4’ vinyl, fluorescent lights, paint
Tacoma Contemporary with Elissa Cox, & Petra Kralickova

This collaborative project was created from three original texts from the artists.
Reconfigured, the words create a temporal play and can be read both in horizontal
and vertical columns as dictated by the window breaks. The text creates a
syncopation that alludes to concrete location while juxtaposing temporary expressions
of longing and placelessness.


Mausoleum under Construction, from London Portfolio, 1992
Screenprint, on wove paper, with full margins, I. 21 7/8 x 31 in. (55.6 x 78.7 cm); S. 27 7/8 x 34 3/4 in.
