Body Double: The Safarani Sisters

Body Double: The Safarani Sisters

This exhibition features the work of identical twin Iranian artists Bahareh and Farzaneh Safarani in their first solo museum exhibition, that opened on November 12, 2021.

As interdisciplinary artists and collaborators, their creative practice exists at the intersection of visual art, new media art, and performance. The exhibition highlights their studio work, charting a path from their signature “video-paintings”—video overlays of choreographed movement projected onto figurative oil-on-canvas paintings—to new pieces that reflect the fluidity of their outlook.

Review

Ethereal and hypnotic, the paintings can stand alone. They are realistic and spare, often depicting a barely furnished room with large windows covered by sheer curtains and drapery. The lighting is dramatic, with sharp contrast between light and dark.
