Karim ZeriahenIt's Taken Me All Of My Life To Find You
Lazarides Rathbone is pleased to announce artist and filmmaker Karim Zeriahen's debut solo exhibition, It's Taken Me All Of My Life To Find You.
The multimedia showcase highlights the commercial art world's admiration of the idolatry of branded individuals and challenges the audience's notion of individual identity. Zeriahen's intimate new body of work features portraits of five female muses, a series of abstract neon pieces as well as exclusive footage of Kate Moss within a purpose-built installation.
It's Taken Me All Of My Life To Find You utilises light, lines and shapes to show movement and emotion in a quest to uncover the Paris-based artist's creative impetus, commenting on the replacement of religions by the cult of brands, the loss of meaning and a persistent obsession of the individual.
Following his contribution in Lazarides' last two off-site group exhibitions, BRUTAL and Bedlam, Karim Zeriahen's first solo exhibition breaks free from the confines of film and compounds his professional and personal experience as he concludes: "It can take one's whole life to know who you really are".
