Overview

Ramin Haerizadeh (born 1975, Tehran), Rokni Haerizadeh (born 1978, Tehran) and Hesam Rahmanian (born 1980, Knoxville) have lived and worked together in Dubai since 2009. They work both independently and as a collective, cultivating a form of collaboration that allows for individualism and the redefinition of the collective in scope and ritual. Their work often blurs the lines between work and life; studio and home; public and private through exhibitions that subvert the notions of viewership and exhibition-making.   

 

The collective has presented solo exhibitions at Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt (2020); The Frye Art Museum, Seattle (2019); Officine Grandi Riparazioni (OGR), Turin (2018); Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), Barcelona (2017); Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), Boston (2015); Kunsthalle Zurich (2015); Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art, Copenhagen (2015), and are currently preparing for upcoming solo shows at Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt and HENI Project Space, The Hayward Gallery, London (both 2020). 

 

They have participated in group exhibitions taking place in prominent venues such as the 22nd Biennale of Sydney with an expansive installation entitled I Prefer Talking to Doctors About Something Else at The Powerhouse Museum (2020), the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark for Homeless Souls (2019) which won the 6th Global Fine Art Award in the Global Humanity category and have created a multi-room installation for The Creative Act at the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi (2017).

 

Their works are held in the collections of  Le Centre National des Arts Plastiques, Paris; Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebaek, Denmark; Frye Art Museum, Seattle, amongst others.
