Abbas Zahedi - Eva Wilson “ ” #07
|Author||Adam Gibbons; Eva Wilson eds.|
A conversation between Eva Wilson and the 2022 Frieze Artist Award Abbas Zahedi, around the core concepts of "translation and transplantation". What happens when we think of the space of art as a living body? Abbas Zahedi became an artist by way of a medical education, a philosophy symposium in a chip shop, community organising, and "Dissociative Realism", as described in an essay by Arsalan Isa. With Eva Wilson, Zahedi explores translation and transplantation as frameworks that allow us to understand ourselves in relation to others—as life-support systems to counter the erosion of identity through trauma.
