Sepideh Zamani (born 1986, Tehran, Iran) graduated in sculpture at Tehran University of Art. She started her career as a graphic designer in advertising agencies and continues to work in design alongside her artistic activities. In 2008, Sepideh accompanied by five other artists founded Tehran Carnival, an artist collective creating underground public art in the city of Tehran. Prominent features of her work include the speed in the work process and the use of humor, repetition, and movement in her narratives.
"Rest" is a return to an installation in the past; A project that began five years ago and will now be completed with structures from the same project. Sepideh's choices in installation are shaped by the connection between the earlier works and the newer ones. According to her: “The main subject in these works is not the work itself but how the work could be described.” In fact, it can be said that this show is a memorial to her previous project.
“Rest” is a throwback to an installation project, "Interview", that began 5 years ago. The main objective in this latest and final installation ("Rest") is not the work itself but how it describes itself using visual elements. I used an image in “Talking Tongue” to describe the work. In "Rest”, the horse of "Interview" has changed position and is now the observer. It is for others to describe the resting horse.
