The Maids

FEB/2018

The work of the Iranian collective formed by Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian differs from today’s dominant tendencies in art by their recovery of the importance of experience and sensuality. Their works focus on contemporary politics with wit and irony; their playful installations blur individual practices through their immediate visual impact.


From 28 October 2017 to 7 January 2018 MACBA presented their artistic proposal “The Maids”, a multi-part exhibition created in response to the city of Barcelona, the result of a two year process the artists call “an assembling of a collective body”. Collaboration is central to their practice: the three artists invite different makers to contribute freely and independently to ongoing works in progress with the aim of creating more equitable forms of artistic exchange.


“We make a space for friends to bring their own approaches”, they say. “It’s important for the process to be open-ended, and the ideas of the invited people into the project become organs of the process.”
