Kayne Griffin Corcoran is pleased to present a solo booth of new works by LA native, Rosha Yaghmai at Art Los Angeles Contemporary. Yaghmai, an emerging artist whose work is rooted in psychedelic concepts, explores themes of potentiality, transformation, and estrangement through her sculptural interventions with both found and cast materials. In these recent works, she plays with ideas of sight and vision through the use of discarded eyeglass lenses. A curtain fabricated from woven lenses creates a distorted passage of visibility, a sensorial manipulation. Freestanding appropriated pipe sculptures fitted with eyeglass lenses evoke a strange anthropomorphism. Through an "exorcism" of materials and an insistence on non-conformity, Yaghmai's objects exist in the mutable space between the real and unknown.
Rosha Yaghmai graduated an MFA at CalArts in 2007, and was a Terra Foundation Fellow in 2009. Her work has been exhibited at spaces including Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE); Estacion Tijuana, Mexico; Riverside Art Museum, Los Angeles; Transmission Gallery, Glasgow; Public Fiction, Los Angeles; and GBK, Sydney.
