Babak Golkar
Time To Let Go...

April-September 2014

Golkar's work juxtaposes dichotomies of tradition and modernity, craft and fine art to find an underlying common ground and an opportunity for multi-layered readings.

Vancouver-Based artist Babak Golkar will presented several large terracotta pots at Offsite

Each vessel is uniquely designed to contain a scream, providing a unique location for viewers to release excess feelings encountered in the everyday. Both clever and playful, Golkar's installation takes a critical look at the effects of increased expectations and anxiety in contemporary society.
