Parsa Kamehkhosh

Thing (-ing)

Parsa Kamehkhosh (b.1985) is an Iranian artist based in Helsinki, Finland. Being in the world is all he is trying to experience. Being present with all of his senses and letting himself be touched and fascinated by what life puts forward. He is constantly Internalizing his perceptions and reflects on them in the form of “bringing things”. This natural process, is actually a way towards understanding his position in the world and expressing his appreciation of it. The outcome usually works either like a mirror that reflects untreated or unrevealed aspects of his personality or a practice through which he encounters and contends with his inner tensions. He believes more in bringing than creating, because he knows himself only as a door through which idea can enter the conceivable realm of existence in a certain way.
Thing (-ing), as the title, is almost a self-made combo which refers to the interaction between the human and things. This collection is a selection of documentation of his last three years performances in which he has practiced thing(-ing).
