Born in Liverpool in 1982, Kianoosh Motallebi’s objects and installations use science and scientific principles as a context to explore art and existentialist questions about mans existence. His works often define a larger context which both the viewer and the work inhabit. This larger context creates a space to challenge and explore the interconnection of everyday experience of mans surroundings and the physical laws that govern them.
Motallebi completed his Masters in Arts at the Slade School of fine Art in London. He currently lives in Amsterdam where he has recently finished a two year residency at the Rijksakademie van Beelden Kunsten.
He has lastly participated in “The Physical Centre” (Guest projects, London, presented by Yinka Shonibare), “Erased Walls” (Berlin), and the RijksakademieOpen 2011. Upcoming events include a presentation at the Van der Mieden Gallery (Antwerp) and a working period at Very Real Time (Cape Town).
