YES (YpsiExperimentalSpace) will be supporting a custom-built month long installation by recent U-M MFA graduate, Iranian born artist, Parisa Ghaderi. Parisa’s current work explores the humanitarian, historical, and emotional complexities inherent in the act of immigration. Parisa draws on her personal immigration experiences transforming this fundamental human odyssey into a visceral experience bridging the gap between immigration as concept and policy and immigration as a human condition. This creative installation aims to paint a portrait of immigration/emigration through the construction of a series of human-scaled “boxes” that reveal myriad cultural differences and connections through the presentation of a collection of focused sensory experiences.
A teaser exhibit of Parisa’s work is currently on view at YES. (8 N. Washington St., Ypsilanti, 24/7)
Parisa’s exhibition/installation is scheduled to be open to the public the entire month of June, 2017.
