A Middle Eastern Night's Dream. Iranian artist Omid Shayan's work serves as an escape from the often tortured realities of the Middle East. Representing escapist fantasies, Shayan's imagery highlights daydreams that whisk us away from daily suffering in a different, fleeting existence, if only for a time. All human beings present masks to the world, separating us from nature until natural beauty is all but forgotten. The key to happiness is the removal of our masks and the seeking of a closer relationship with nature, as Rembrandt said, "I am the grandson of nature", and so in lies the key to our happiness.

To Be a Woman. Through a feminist lens, Matrix artists reflect the challenges faced by women in Iranian culture. By revealing inherently oppressive social conventions, the artists present and expose the agents of repression and depict traditional patriarchal society in fresh, thought provoking ways. The Matrix group: Hoda Najafi, Yalda Khajehzadeh, Samira Alborzkouh and Layla Fathizadeh are young women who grew up in post-Islamic Revolution Iran. Their art serves as testament to their views and experiences, critical, humorous or contradictory. Article: “L'Orient-Le Jour / Être (ou ne pas être) dans le monde arabe”:

Connect: the Virtual Family Album. The digital reality we live in killed loneliness. Seeing your brother graduate, grabbing a bite with your parents, having sex with your girlfriend is just one click away. It isn’t until your video call starts distorting the beautiful faces of your loved ones that you remember that you are living alone and depressed, thousands of miles away. “Connect” is an attempt to create a family album in a digitised era, immortalising the moments spent alone with those who matter.

Dance of the Pen. “It is the first time in the history of right-to-left languages that someone uses the back of a calligraphy pen, and writes Persian and Arabic calligraphy in bold and normal fonts” In this exhibition, Korosh Ghazimorad unveils his latest develop- ment in the calligraphy Sarir. This new style has been developed over a course of seven years, by studying Persian, Arabic, Chi- nese and Western calligraphy forms and methods. Using Sarir to interpret Shahnameh, the Persian heritage epic poem, the artist tries to revive the art of his ancestors. His artworks vary from ink on paper, to scaled mixed media can- vases and installations in Sarir style. Article: “L'orient-Le Jour / Sur la pointe de son crayon, une musique...”:

Ex Nihilo. Afshin Hosseinzadeh, born on April 14, 1983 in Iran, graduated in the field of Painting in 2004 member of Image Group at Iran Children Book Council from 2007 to 2011 "My paintings are the reflection of my perception of space and people around me. Since childhood, I was greatly affected and later involved by the unbalance of the elements of the world and social differences & disparity on the basis of race, creed, wealth, etc... But somehow this bitter reality seems hidden by a screen of dust. In fact, for me, this whole world, places, people, disparity, unbalance... All becomes dust! And like the dust, nothing is static, it shifts at the whim of some external factor. I tried to capture these feelings by depicting the relationship between the light and the darkness and the grey in between, and in order to capture this fleeting dusty glimpse before it is blown away by the wind, I resorted to the most direct working tools and media."

UNDRESSED - Society’s reflection in its brands. If you wish to recognize a nation, its ideals, how it lives, what it consumes and what it talks about, its fancies and its aversions, its wit and its dullness, you only need to observe its advertising campaigns. Advertising guru David Ogilvy once said: “Advertising reflects the mores of society, but it does not influence them.” What if, for once, advertising had to truly reflect human behavior? ‘Undressed’ is a compilation of large ballpoint drawings, films and sounds, reflecting the real mores of social beings, with the intent to influence them.

Noise. “I have selected scenes from “Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom” in homage to Pier Paolo Pasolini, for exploring the still-current themes of political corruption, abuse of power, sadism, perversion and sexuality. Through the development of this project, I tried to use design, tools, materials and colors for my paintings pleasure in order to offset the brutality and repugnance of the subject matter of these unsettling scenes. I have transformed the classical lighting and baroque interiors by melting the setting to absorb the human characters and slowly decomposing into a semi- abstraction”.

Still Image Creativity of Indefinite Superstructures. “Through the photos taken in the United States of America, Elie Khoury, a.k.a Leo to his close friends, was searching for signs of pattern and curves found in any architectural structure, whether a skyscraper or an old building. In the process, he discovered that while searching for a final project he was really searching for himself. This is the reason why each picture is carefully studied and reflects the techniques used through the shape, light and volume in relation to architecture. On the other hand, Elie carefully edited his frames in line with the imaginary project he was seeking, in a world where rules are hanged and a visual perspectives is shown”.
