Noor

Zarina

Marais Space

The Gallery presents an exhibition entitled Noor, Zarina’s first solo show in Paris with works on paper, recent installations and historic papier mâchés sculptures from the 1980s.

Zarina’s art embraces at one and the same time architecture, sculpture and woodcuts; tactile in the materials used, it is minimal in its expression, and dense with meaning. Her work, like a journal, deals with themes such as the house, the home, displacement, travel and memory. Far from being simply an archeology of the past, Zarina’s work brings forth places and atmospheres that are shaped by imagination and desire.
