Catalog published on the occasion of Gohar Dashti's solo exhibition "Beyond Seas and Trees", by Silvia Cirelli, 15 October 2020 – 6 January 2021, Yards of Image, Milan.
Central nucleus of Beyond Seas and Trees, are the last two photographic series by Gohar Dashti (Ahvaz, Iran – 1980), Land/s and Uprooted, artistic projects that are characterized by a poetic approach that once again excludes the human presence, to give way to the sublime natural world.
In fact, the artist uses nature as a terrain for exploration, contemplation and ultimate achievement of the artistic message. Although paradoxically absent, the human component remains in any case the protagonist. In the visceral correspondence between the natural and the anthropic world, the artist conquers an unprecedented perceptual dimension, capable of leading to a repertoire of emotions and memories.
