Born in Iran and based in Berlin, German artist Nairy Baghramian explores and reflects on formal languages of both modernism and post-minimalism. Over the past two decades, Baghramian has become known for her reflections on minimalism and her contextual approaches to exhibition via sculpture and site-responsive installations. Her work marks boundaries, transitions, and gaps in the museum space and the urban space, referencing interior and exterior, fashion and design, theatre and dance, form and meaning, and context and discourse. This lavishly illustrated overview of the work of Nairy Baghramian includes illuminating texts that explore the sculptor’s creative process.
