Afruz Amighi - Echo's Chamber

24 November 2017 - 19 January 2018

Afruz Amighi, Knife Girl II, 2017

Sophia Contemporary is pleased to announce Echo’s Chamber, the first solo exhibition of Iranian-American artist Afruz Amighi in the UK. The exhibition – which also marks Amighi’s first solo show with Sophia Contemporary following her successful inclusion in the gallery’s group show ‘Shifting Landscapes’ earlier this year – will feature nine new sculptures made from the artist’s signature combination of steel, chain, and mesh illuminated by light, along with eight drawings. Spurred by the continued struggle for women’s liberation as well as by the current sociopolitical climate in both the USA where she resides and in her native Middle East, Amighi’s new works explore ideas of femininity through a series of female archetypes from history as well as the artist’s personal experience. The exhibition will remain on view through January 19, 2018. Sophia Contemporary Gallery published a catalogue on the occassion of this exhibition, please contact us to request a copy.
