Art Guide: ‘This Brittle Light’

April 28, 2021

In a recent review of Buxton Contemporary’s current exhibition This Brittle Light in Art Guide Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen writes:

“I feel moved by What Goes Around, a video work by father and son Hossein and Nassiem Valamanesh, which animates a previously existing artwork, For Honey – a dedication to a lost family pet. A bundle of sticks and oil burners adorns an upside-down chair, which rotates slowly, hypnotically, zooming in and out. Beauty in the everyday, in the ordinary – it is easy to forget to look for it sometimes. There is power in making something with the person who made you.”
