Shahryar Nashat’s third solo show at Elisabeth Kaufmann Gallery Zurich is called “Because The Ultimate Foundation Is Not Founded”. “Facing Nashat’s artwork enables visitors to experience surprising juxtapositions of reverse moments which offer a most favourable opportunity to sharpen one’s own perception.” Excerpt of a statement on Shahryar Nashat by Denise Frey at the gallery’s website). Shahryar Nashat (born 1975 in Teheran) grew up in Switzerland. He lives and works in Paris, right now he is artist in residence in Beijing. In 2005 he was invited to represent Switzerland in the Swiss Pavilion at the 51st Venice Biennale (together with Gianni Motti, Marco Poloni and Ingrid Wildli) showing his multimedia-based installation “The Regulating Line”. Elisabeth Kaufmann Zürich, opening reception, August 23, 2006.
