1

Farhad Moshiri, an Iranian artist working a lot with carpet media using it as a mean to joke about consumerism culture, was one of the participants of the group show Love Me Love Me Not of Yarat! pavilion curate by Dina Nasser-Khadivi (read on her curating Lalla Essaydi’s Harem here) at Venice 2013 Art Biennial. The installation consists of more than 500 carpets depicting celebrities-covered magazines from all over the world.

“In our globalized world the Magazine Store or Kiosk de Press is where the opinions of the collective are commodified and force-led. It is the autoportrait of our society, the Cabine de Curiosité of our culture.”
