Home Fires 04: Sheida Soleimani

16 September 2020

Home Fires is a series of short conversations between Edel Assanti's artistic director Jeremy Epstein and gallery artists, discussing a recent or ongoing body of work. The conversations address inspiration, research and studio process, whilst framing individual works within a broader context of each artist's practice. 


In this episode of Home Fires, we discuss the first work in Sheida Soleimani's new series, Reparations Packages, entitled Italy & Libya (2019). The series reframes the paying of reparations as a global practice by which nations turn the ethics of historical injustices into playing fields for geopolitical and economic interests.
