IBRAHIM QURAISHI: DREAMING ARIZONA

For his solo presentation at Lumen Travo Gallery, Quraishi presents, DREAMING Arizona (2009) and Islamic Violins (2008). DREAMING Arizona, a series of works realised in Amsterdam after several months of research in the United States, particularly in Arizona, Texas, Utah and Colorado. Quraishi explores the American landscape, where cowboys once reigned. He questions the modern day notion of power and masculinity, related to former vigilantes, whose image is embedded in the common global imaginary of the Arizona landscape.
