Projective City is pleased to announce {RE.SIDE…} yet again, an exhibition of new, large-scale sculptural works by artist Sanam Enayati. Enayati’s installation for Paris-Scope is in conjunction with the exhibition Crossing the Line: Contemporary Drawing and Artistic Process, curated by Larry Ossei-Mensah and Dexter Wimberly, on view at Mixed Greens Gallery in New York City. In addition to this being Enayati’s first exhibition with Projective City, this is also the first time Paris-Scope has been included as part of an exhibition at a separate location.

crossingline graphEnayati references mark making and other traditionally drawn imagery through her use of thread, filament, and other knitted elements. Her newest body of work investigates the physicality of basic human emotions.  By identifying one emotion and letting it transform and overlap with another, Enayati seeks to create a new, non-familiar space/reality through a series of “feminine” and “domestic” processes, repetitive movements, and obsessive behaviors.  {RE.SIDE…} yet again fills the gallery space with a knitted mass and precariously large knitting needle, all washed in pink light. The placement and atmosphere creates a simultaneously warm and anxious experience for the visitor.

Sanam Enayati was born in the United States and raised in Tehran, Iran.  She holds a BFA from the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago, IL, an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in NYC, and a Masters of Fashion Design focused on sociology and psychology from Istituto Marangoni in Milan, Italy. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
