EOA was founded by a small collective of artists who met in the mountains of Aseer, Saudi Arabia, in 2003. What began as a border-crossing collaboration, against the backdrop of the last Gulf War, is now an established platform which has grown bold through the realisation of international projects & the grassroots support for its mission.

EOA.PROJECTS GALLERY

Palimpsest | Darvish Fakhr


4 september - 8 november 2014

EOA.PROJECTS is proud to present Darvish Fakhr’s debut solo exhibition in London, Palimpsest. In a body of work including paintings, installation and the eponymous digital collage ‘Palimpsest’ (2014), Fakhr explores the relationship between shared memory and the passage of time, looking both to the past and the future. We see Iranian peep shows, utopian landscapes and studio portraits; fortune-telling birds, telephone numbers, stencilled graffiti slogans, obituaries and, central to this body of work, offering both a way in and a challenge, a family of mostly anonymous individuals gazing out at us and the world beyond.
