The Time it takes

Azadeh Esmaili Zaghi

Kurator: Tawanda Appiah, Simona Dumitriu

08.06.2019 - 14.07.2019


The large scale installation Keys of Heaven will fill the walls of Skånes konstförening, as a reflexive, strong ending to the first half year of programming. Göteborg-based artist Azadeh Esmaili Zaghi frames, with Keys of Heaven, a narrative of displaced time, a memorial impulse that asks for silence and respect.  

In Esmaili Zaghi’s words, her work centers around the effort “to bring the silent and less regarded events to the surface and light them up”, while in the same time constructing them within major topics such as international relations, anti racism critique, refusal, exceptionalism critique and the representation of trauma within history.

We are honored to present Keys of Heaven to its full extent, letting the installation echo its silent and resonating undertow in the rooms of the gallery. The process of gathering the components of this work is a lifelong one for the artist, and the questions it brings forth are for you to either ask, discover, or let unfold as you walk from one object to the next.

The extent of space that each person is allowed or can take in society, in a here and now in which time stands suspended and bereft, dictates the binding and loosing that one has at their disposal, it dictates one’s power and limits of interpretation. Walk within the unsaid, quietly, and be mindful to the whispered stories protruding from each wall.  

In the artist’s words: “I am making art as live performance, video performance, images, installation and objects, often with social and political impetus. The foundation of my artistic practice is built around social, economical and political injustices in order to bring the silent and less regarded events to the surface and light them up. What I am investigating though practice are international relations, political economy, monetary policy, currency, economic sanctions and political frame of exile.”

Additional public program will be released soon.
