Amira’s first solo in seven years is an exhibition curated by Simindokht Dehghani that promises to take it’s visitors on a voyage that started off as an homage to the awakening of all her feelings and senses then transpired into a celebration of trials and errors. One of the most interesting aspects of Amira Behbehani as an artist, aside from her autodidacticism, is her unyielding engagement in the production of her art and her bravery in its presentation and exhibition. We all draw and paint as children without giving any thought to how our work develops, how it is received or perceived.

Precious Fragments are memories;
Memories of the past recalled because of an experience in the present;
Precious Fragments are spontaneous;
They are accompanied by surprise
They are involuntary;
Precious Fragments can’t be thought;
They can only be experienced;
Precious Fragments are sometimes pleasant;
And sometimes they are not;
But they are always a way through to another memory.

Precious Fragments is an exhibition of seven contemporary artists from Iran. Each work recalls an experience of the past; a mother; a poem; a resistance; an artwork, a building or a sign.
