Atoosa Pour Hosseini, ‘Luminosity’

‘Luminosity’, the new exhibition by Dublin-based visual artist Atoosa Pour Hosseini, contains drawings, moving-image installations and sound.

This new body of work is made in response to the Cork Film Centre Gallery and its surroundings at the Gunpowder Mills, Ballincollig. The work has been in process since mid-2012, and was completed during her residency at the Guesthouse, Cork, in April 2013.

Drawing forms the starting point of Pour Hosseini’s work, with a sketchbook providing storage for the noting down of ideas and for experimentation with forms that are developed into autonomous drawings and audio/video works.

Ideas are triggered through observations made during everyday life, but also through memories. She tends to create a very personal space, which is both uncanny and obscure, favouring nostalgic and dreamlike atmospheres. Her works usually dissolve narration in order to eventually reach an enigmatic and mysterious state.

Atoosa Pour Hosseini (Born in Tehran, 1981) is an Iranian visual artist based in Dublin since 2006. She uses a variety of media in her practice including drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and video. Her work has been exhibited widely in Ireland and Internationally in USA, the Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Estonia and Iran.
