Blindness is made for The exhibition “[…] an exhibition on artist profiling”, as the result of a six month long project initiated by TheArtCornerofTehran in collaboration with arthereistanbul and the class of Hermann Pitz at The Academy of Fine arts in Munich.
During these six months, Shirin Zeraaty and Tabitha Nagy have worked with 12 artists to curate an exhibition on the topic of Artist Profiling, exploring the relation of the life of the artist and the artwork and the interpretation of works based on the context created by texts, like the biographies. The result is 12 artworks and the documentation of the process. Each of the artists wrote a biography under an alter ego name. The biographies were swapped and the artists made an artwork impersonating the artist whose biography they received.
