Dubai-based Iranian artists Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian are constantly redefining the limits of their practice as individual artists and as a collaborative, fervently developing their work to tackle issues that constitute nowadays reality. Permanently researching, reflecting, experimenting and creating, the trio’s first collective exhibition, I Put It There, You Name It, took pace in 2012 at their Dubai gallery, Isabelle van den Eynde, and they have since gone on to stage shows around the world. Most recently, they touched upon subjects of displacement at the recent Speak, Lokal exhibition at the Zurich Kunsthalle, the constraints inherent to the logistics required by the art system in the 9th Liverpool Biennale, the fluxus strategies in their immersive multi-room and multi-disciplinary installation at the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi’s The Creative Act. In all subjects, they seek to embrace the positive while they also explore alienation, disorientation and loss of meaning.
