Pooneh Maghazehe

Pooneh Maghazehe makes objects, prints, photos and sometimes performs. Using materials often for their symbolic qualities, Maghazehe’s approach to form maps the entanglements of encryption and erasure. The starting point for her recent works involve casting parts of a single mold and dry point printmaking - both mediums steeped in ideas about an origin story, its replicas, and the question of permanence. The Diet Coke logo, supermarket coupons, silhouettes of a seagull, and supersized doodles all permeate her work but never converge into full resolution. Similar to the processes of printmaking and casting, the images toy with the question of temporality and embodiment. The resulting works expose an intuitive material record keeping that mutually empowers an original and the pulpy residues of its manipulation.
