Soli Kiani

Ossian – Rebellion

28.04. – 19.06.2022

The Iranian-Austrian artist Soli Kiani (born 1981 in Shiraz, Iran, lives and works in Vienna since 2000) will show her first solo exhibition in an institutional context in spring 2022 at tresor in the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien under the title Ossian – Rebellion. Kiani's themes are human rights and human dignity. In sometimes drastic images, the artist brings to light the social, political and religious everyday reality of people who refuse to bow to the regime in Islamic Iran. 

For her exhibition at tresor in the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien, the artist has created a whole complex of new works, working primarily in the field of sculpture with new materials such as rope and concrete. Ossian – Rebellion is a multimedia project that combines painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, found footage, collage, sound and installation, but is always characterized by a certain formal rigor and a restrained palette in white, black and gray. A self-empowered woman and artist, Kiani interweaves her biography with a broad social context, and for more than 20 years has left it exclusively to herself, rather than to others, to decide how to show her work and identity as a female artist.
