Arnolfini

REVIEWS | Arnolfini’s Winter/Spring Programme 2020

Through an imagined conversation both visual and vocal, the exhibition transcends limitational boundaries, whilst Amak’s thoughtfully composed family portraits and scenic landscapes create a space in which we can place our own story. –  Chloe Fox for Hundred Heroines

Bridging Distances Across Oceans and Time on Hundred Heroines

The work of these two women succeeds in connecting us beyond our world’s keenest troubles. With incredible insight, Mahmoodian and Mesiti offer deeply personal responses to our global situation.
– Melissa Chemam for Lucy Writers Platform

THE CHAINS THAT BIND US: AMAK MAHMOODIAN AND ANGELICA MESITI AT ARNOLFINI, BRISTOL ON LUCY WRITERS PLATFORM

There is an incredible depth of sound, and as it surrounds me, I feel part of something — more than just a detached observer. This seems intentional on Mesiti’s part, as she encourages the spectators to face each other and experience the work together: to remind us of our own ‘assembly’. – Maggie Nicoll for Epigram

Angelica Mesiti’s ASSEMBLY @ Arnolfini ★★★★★ on epigram

 

Both ASSEMBLY and Zanjir have books to accompany them that you can buy from Arnolfini Bookshop. Amak Mahmoodian’s Zanjir photobook has been reviewed by 1000 words here:

It is a reflective book that contains a deeply personal narrative which pertains to broader concerns of love, grief and exile, that are tightly held in our hearts. – Caroline Molloy for 1000 Words
