Ali Zanjani

Iran, Tehran Ag Galerie

Ali Zanjani (Isfahan, 1986) is a Tehran-based artist who creates work using film frames from cinematic, educational and news archives formerly owned by the pre-Revolution National Iranian Broadcasting Company.  The current series titled "Out of Sight" continues in his practice of recycling images. By selecting specific frames and removing them from their original context, he re-censors the adult film and allows it to find renewed life as permissible artwork in a censored art scene.

Zanjani has a BA in Carpet Design from the Ardakan University of Art in Yazd.  He has exhibited in Iran, Brazil, UAE, Lebanon and the Netherlands and his work has been published internationally in France, Iran and the UAE.
