FOUR STUDIES OF COCOON | GOLNAR TABIBZADEH

The artistic work of Golnar Tabibzadeh as part of our Lockdown Residency represents a healing and pictorial act of self-care - dealing with claustrophobic feelings through painting.

Golnar on the work: Like an ancient seed, it surrounds me with slowness. It crawls around my skin with its long, elastic hands, warm and damp and still. I hear the sound of droplets from the bottom as the tears of all my years soak my sky-high feet. Every drop, an echo: most of them alone in the company of others. Like an ancient seed, he plants me in a spot of slowness. And patiently waits for my grief to break out.
