    Let's Get Lost ( Let Them Send Out Alarms ) 2.0 I Janet Rady Fine Art & Nouvelle Vague Artspaces

    13 May 2020 – 21 Jan 2021

    Originally opening on March 30th and running through May 13th 2020 - before being indefinitely extended and included to the Middle East Institute's Fall 2020 Group Exhibit in Washington DC - the 'Let's Get Lost ( Let Them Send Out Alarms ) 2.0' VR show is the result of a collaborative effort reuniting London based art dealer and curator Janet Rady - JRFA - and Marbella based cross-cultural contemporary art project Nouvelle Vague Artspaces - NVA. Artist Statement : ‘ In March 2020 I moved back into my Marbella workshop after six months in Morocco, where I had been sourcing and producing the ‘Banners of the Unbanished’ monumental installation for the 1-54 African Art fair that successfully opened in February. A few days in, the world went into a lockdown. I decided to enforce the lockdown rule to the letter and only use media I had inside the workshop, at hand. Cutting off from outside supplies, I reflected on Rem Koolhaas’s idea of ‘Junkspace’ , a concept I had previously juggled with for my first London solo show at Mews 42 Gallery, down in 2013. I here worked around a monochromatic palette reusing recuperated furniture fabric, transforming my post-tribal lost forms into new forms - in order to express sentiment of confinement. The feeling of the outside from the inside. The freedom of inner vitality so present in all Persian poetry that ultimately also turned into the creation of a poetic soundscape ‘ The Strange Death of The Future’. The title of the exhibition is taken from a Chet Baker track I had on as I was working, it threw me back to the 1988 "Let's Get Lost" black and white film by photographer Bruce Weber - that I have always loved - documenting Chet Baker’s last days on earth. It expresses an idea of the internal voyage, where true creative freedom always lies’ Firouz FarmanFarmaian Firouz FarmanFarmaian History and memory inform the work of Persian-born artist Firouz FarmanFarmaian, whose lifetime of living in exile in Paris, France profoundly influenced both his creative practice and individual character. "It is circumstance that ultimately shapes lives", says the artist, whose work seeks to actively engage in a dialogue with the past. As such, his compositions possess a vivacious and spontaneous energy, as well as a deeply symbolic quality, which speaks to a multiplicity of currents in politics, art and philosophy. Rooted in Persian lore, and focused on themes of nature, architectonics and the interplay between realism and abstraction, FarmanFarmaian's diverse body of work is united by common motifs of movement and texture. The raw and visceral emotion of his pieces is tempered by their material properties, which are strongly rooted in a resolute emphasis on craftsmanship. Each work is the result of careful contemplation of the techniques and tools that will achieve a singular aesthetic and emotional intention. These in turn are deftly combined to create a unique visual rhythm across a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, film and music. ​Lives and works in between Marbella and Marrakech. His works figure in the collections of Queen Farah Diba, Mo Afkhami, Christine Amanpour and Antonio Banderas to name a few.

    Opening on March 30th and running through May 13th 2020 London based art dealer and curator Janet Rady will present Firouz FarmanFarmaian’s very latest body of work via a multiplatform dematerialized digital exhibition. The exhibition will launch on Artsy on Monday 30th followed by a weeklong takeover of JRFA’s instagram account, starting Wednesday April 1st. FarmanFarmaian’s Tales of Confinement posts will include art talks, poetry readings, music performances and workshop visits. Let's Get Lost ( Let them Send out Alarms ) was produced under the ongoing international lockdown and reflects on the idea of confinement, here brought into the heart of the artist's own practice. Statement : ‘ I moved back into the Marbella workshop after six months in Morocco, where I had been on the road sourcing and producing the ‘Banners of the Unbanished’ monumental installation for the 1-54 African Art fair.

It expresses the idea of the internal voyage, where true creative freedom lies.
