Ludic Garden shows new work of Atashi from 2017–18, together with new versions of previous works, and essays by various writers. Pádraic E. Moore explores the assembling of natural and synthethic matter, with a focus on the decadent appearance of Atashi’s work, in a letter written after a studio visit. Adam Bobbette describes in his essay how birds trained for Indonesian birdsong competitions become recording devices, broadcasting environmental violence and a landscape in distress. Arnisa Zeqo relocates self-portraits of Atashi taken in the cityscape of Tehran (2008 – 2010) to the coast of Albania, where she looks at them carefully again. And somewhere along the way Kate Strain, Mehraneh Atashi, and Radna Rumping sit down on a picnic blanket, marking a piece of land while discussing ghosts, becoming disoriented, and carving out the memory as material.
