The ‘Heartaches’ series – sculptural boxes made of mixed collages and arrangements of photographs, prints and various objects – was made by Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian in New York in the Nineties. These twenty-five intimate small-scale sculptures were primarily made after the loss of her husband, and draw inspiration from all the places, faces and paraphernalia that at some stage in her history were associated with a happy family life.

Infinite Possibility 1974 – 2014
Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian

Published on the occasion of the first museum survey of mirror works and drawings by Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (Qazvin, 1924), this book offers a critical and art historical view on a singular body of work produced over a career of more than 40 years.

Essays by curator Suzanne Cotter, cultural historian Shiva Balaghi, and art historian and critic Media Farzin examine Monir’s oeuvre and its development from the 1970s to the present in relation to the decorative and architectural traditions of Islamic art and the cosmopolitan contemporary art world of which she has always been a part. A detailed timeline situates the artist’s personal and artistic trajectory within the broader context of contemporaneous historical, social and cultural events worldwide.
