Digital Print on Paper
8 x 11 in / 20.32 x 27.94 cm
Becoming Landscape in a Landscape then Disappearing is an installation view from an ongoing series of suspended mountains. It's made out of a 550 sq ft cotton hand dyed fabric. In this body of work, I hang dyed fabric from trees in the middle of a forest in Ramsar, Iran in the form of mountains. I make my dreamy mountains perceptible and portable.

Leila Seyedzadeh lives and works in New York. She received a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from The University of Science and Culture in 2014 and an M.F.A. from Yale University School of Art in 2019. Seyedzadeh was a recipient of the H. Lee Hirsche prize at Yale School of Art. She has been invited to participate in exhibitions which include shows at WhiteBox in New York, and Dastan Gallery in Art Dubai 2019. Her work is represented in institutional exhibitions in the U.S. and Iran which includes Green Hall Gallery at Yale University and Ahvaz Contemporary Art museum in Iran. Seyedzadeh’s work addresses imaginary landscapes and focuses on natural subjects such as mountains that are extracted from the subconscious. It is as if she is attaching together pieces of her memories, and by doing so she is destroying their meaning, and thus creating a landscape that is immersed in placelessness. She is currently completing her residency at NYFA's Immigrant Artist Mentorship 2020 Program in New York.
