Y.Z. kami’s “To Jerusalem” at the Venice Biennale


Amatuer d’art & Designboom took notice of an Iranian artist, Y.Z. kami at this year’s Venice Biennale. His new series “To Jerusalem” portrays citizens of old Jerusalem through the prism of their faith.

Designboom explains.

Y.Z. kami is best known for his portraits of humble, unremarkable people with compact and acute gazes. their modesty and solitude unites us in the awareness of our mortality. there is a precise resignation about kami’s unassuming portraits that cut through class, gender and, to an extent, language.

    Maybe it is “In Jerusalem” as opposed to “To Jerusalem”, a more static, less hopeful vision.
