BRUSSELS.- This duo exhibition with Iranian artist Monir Sharoudy Farmanfarmaian was suggested by Belgian artist Jef Geys. Monir is regarded as one of the more inspiring and innovative artists to have come out of Iran. She lived and worked in New York for many years, but the essence of her work has always been the reinterpretation, formal as much as spiritual, of elements of Iranian culture, architecture and traditions. Like Monir, Geys too is interested in geometric forms and their variations, in popular traditions and local customs, in optical illusions and in the beauty and complexity of nature. The show gathers a representative selection of Monir’s work, including eleven old and new mirror-reliefs, twelve object drawings, three disco balls and one sculpture, as well as three new works by Geys, one a major project, paired with a selection of older pieces, such as the video A day, a night, a day... (2002).

JEF GEYS
Jef Geys (b. 1934, Leopoldsburg; lives and works in Balen) is one of the most important artists working in Belgium today. His photographic works, sculptures and installations, Geys combines art, politics and social issues in a unique way. The work entertains a vibrant connection with local and daily issues, and is based on an extensive archive consisting of sketches, correspondence, photographs, press articles and newspaper clippings.

MONIR SHAHROUDY FARMANFARMAIAN
Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (b. 1924, Qazvin; lives and works in Tehran) is a leading Iranian artist with a remarkable career spanning more than six decades. Monir – as she is commonly referred to – is known for her meticulously crafted mirror mosaics, geometric patterns and reverse-glass paintings. At the Sharjah Biennial this year she received an award in recognition of her exceptional work.
