The Cold Earth Sleeps Below

February 18, 2016 @ 10:00 am - March 26, 2016 @ 6:00 pm

New York, NY—Leila Heller Gallery is pleased to present a collaborative exhibition between filmmaker Shoja Azari and painter Shahram Karimi, on view from February 18th to March 26th, 2016. The Cold Earth Sleeps Below features eleven of the artists’ unique, hallmark video-paintings, portraying and exploring humanity’s relation to the natural landscape. The exhibition takes its title from the work of English poet Percy Shelley; the artists seek to revisit, in their own words, the contemporary relevance of “the paradoxical notion of beauty and the sublime that the Romantics fought to free from the clutch of utilitarian materialism, egoism, and the rational mind of the 18th century”.
A catalogue with essay by Brooklyn Rail editor, Phong Bui, will accompany the exhibition.
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 18, 6 — 8 pm, 568 West 25th Street New York, NY 10012
