Hannah Chalew & Sara Madandar Lecture
November 8 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Artists Hannah Chalew & Sara Madandar will present a School of Art lecture at the LSU College of Art & Design at 5 p.m. on Thursday, November 8, 2018, in the LSU Design Building Auditorium (room 103).
Hannah Chalew is an artist from New Orleans. Her artwork explores the relationship between nature and culture as we slide into the collective uncertainty of life in the age of global warming.
Sara Madandar is a US-based artist from Iran. She was born in Tehran. She got her MFA at the University of Texas at Austin. She currently works in painting, sculpture, video and performance. Her work is mostly about the relationship of the human to their bodies and covers. She materializes the issues of existing in an in-between space through construction and deconstruction of the canvas. Her work evokes a sensation out of destruction and touches on the cultural displacements of corporeality. Her sculptures are objects related to the human body and are in the actual size of the body. Her video, video installations, and performances are influenced by her emigration and comparison between two cultures. She uses different elements to transmit her concepts such as patterns, hair as lines, women’s body and more.
