IRAN AT THE VENICE BIENNALE
July 5, 2017 - Kayhan Life
On show in Venice this year is the work of Masoud Akhavanjam. Of the Iranian-born artists represented at the Venice Biennale, he is the only one still to be living and working in Iran. His sculpture “Ballerina,” which took 18 months to complete and is made of a fusion of stainless steel and bronze, occupies the second floor of the exhibition “Personal Structures: Open Borders” at Venice’s Palazzo Bembo.
