Through the myriad forms and roles of his characters, Ramin Haerizadeh asks fundamental questions about social codes in his native Iran - both real and imagined.

Mentored by Massoud Massoumi, Ramin’s photography was exhibited at Paris Photo and Cassia Assia (2004). His solo exhibitions include I’ll Huff and I’ll Puff, Gallery IVDE, Dubai (2010) and Melancholy of the Everyday, Studio 1.1, London (2007). He currently shares a studio with his brother Rokni in Dubai.

Haerizadeh, Ramin

Beware of this Artist

In his new body of works Ramin Haerizade depicts multiple reproductions of the self, as fractured, mirrored, morphed, amorphous, cross-gendered, bestial, a Kafkaesque indeterminate creature with a distinctly evolved phallicism.
