Panteha Abareshi’s exhibition showcases two new films that will premier online along with a sculptural installation, all of which examines the tensions between the impermanence of the human body, and the intimate objects (both biological and synthetic) that our bodies leave behind after it ceases to function. Their work plays with the idea of prosthetics as a mechinacized object fulfilling malfunction and void in our bodies to back to what is perceived to be normal, including an exploration of how these prosthetics exist as objects and ideas beyond their function. Abareshi’s work complicates traditional notions of memento mori by how these objects reconsider the frequently otherized body that is diseased and malfunctioning, rather than viewing this natural phenomenon normal, inevitable and a function of life.

Panteha Abareshi [b. 1999, Montreal, Canada (they/them)] is currently completing their BFA at the University of Southern California’s Roski School of Art and Design. Abareshi has performed and exhibited at the Institute of Contemporary Art Los Angeles; Human Resources, Los Angeles; and the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, among others.
