Adopting the Deleuzian idea of the fold as a desire of change (1993), The Fold(s) is a curatorial project composed of four books operating as four individual exhibitions by Carolina Grilo Santos, Joana Patrão, Mónica de Miranda, and Rouzbeh Akhbari. Under the artistic direction of Luísa Santos, The Fold(s) was developed in the context of the Seminar in Curatorship by the MA and PhD students in Culture Studies of The Lisbon Consortium, Faculty of Human Sciences, Universidade Católica Portuguesa.
The first public presentation will take place on April 22nd at Hangar.
Rouzbeh Akhbari is an artist working in video installation and film. His practice is research-driven and usually exists at the intersections of political economy, story-telling and critical architecture & planning.
Through a delicate examination of the violence and intimacies that occur at the boundaries of lived experience and constructed histories, he uncovers the minutiae of power that organizes and regiments the world around us.
Akhbari was trained as a sculptor at OCAD University and holds a graduate degree in visual studies from University of Toronto’s School of Architecture, Landscape and Design.
