Shulamit Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of mixed media performance installations by the internationally renowned performance artist, vocalist and composer, Sussan Deyhim. Based in Los Angeles, Deyhim recently completed an artist residency at the acclaimed Robert Rauschenberg Foundation in Captiva Island, FL. Forough Farrokhzad, the influential 1950’s Iranian literary heroine, feminist existentialist poet and filmmaker, inspired Deyhim’s art works created as part of a larger media stage production “The House is Black” to be presented by CAP UCLA at Royce Hall on January 23, 2014). The prints were produced during Deyhim’s residency fellowship at the Rauschenberg Residency/Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.

Each performance installation on view at Shulamit Gallery is from Sussan Deyhim’s personal explorations into Farrokhzad’s potent feminist existential poetry. During Dawn of the Cold Season, the gallery will be transformed into a multi-level performance installation space showcasing Deyhim’s saturated photographs, videos, haunting vocals and music in collaboration with Golden Globe winning composer Richard Horowitz. The installations are inspired by Forough Farrokhzad poems: I Will Greet the Sun Again, Let us Believe in the Dawn of the Cold Season, Sin, and Wind up Doll. In addition to the installation the gallery will host a series of live performances by Sussan Deyhim throughout the run of the show. These performances will include Forough Farrokhzad poetry readings in both Farsi and English with original music and elements of sound throughout the gallery space. Viewers will step into an intimate and provocative secret world.
