Pilar Corrias is pleased to announce Mam Project 027: Tala Madani, Madani’s first solo show in Japan, with her paintings, video and some new works.

Madani’s works frequently feature balding, paunchy middle-aged men. Their childish behavior, and the unkind treatment they suffer, appear to suggest a crisis in male-dominated society. Her “Shit Mother” series (2019-), meanwhile, shows infants playing with a mother who has turned into excrement: a deliberate desecration of iconic image of mother and child. Many of Madani’s other images, including a grid representing modernism, violence generated by power structures and mob mentalities, and the bestial instincts of humans, can also be viewed as keenly ironic comments on the Western-centric society.

These works which shine a light on a primitive human essence that transgresses rational norms, plunging a well-honed scalpel into our moral views, will doubtless inspire fresh contemplation of the tolerance toward others espoused by multiculturalism.
