In addition to their participation to the biennale fo Sydney, Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian present a second project at the Powerhouse Museum. Taking the form of visual poetry by incorporating and disorganising objects from the Powerhouse Museum collection, I Prefer Talking to Doctors About Something Else makes a sweeping arc across the themes of grief, the body and healing.
In considering this installation as visual poetry - as a form of reading and being in the world - the process has involved selecting handcrafted objects in dialogue with industrial and technological ones. Scientific texts have also been chosen to coexist with philosophical readings.
The installation also includes a video work, Porkhani, by fellow Iranian artists Javad Azimi and Hamid Hosseini.
Visitors are also invited to view the collaborative installation process from 2-6 and 9-13 March.
