The collaborative work of Ramin Haerizadeh (born 1975), Rokni Haerizadeh (born 1978) and Hesam Rahmanian (born 1980) calls for a radical redefinition of the artists’ collective, encompassing the collective and individual efforts of the three artists. The first comprehensive monograph on the group, Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, Hesam Rahmanian, details the three artists’ collaborative activities since 2009, from the chaotic creative centrifuge of their shared home in Dubai to their exuberant, more-is-more exhibitions that blur the lines between their individually produced works and further expand their sphere to incorporate friends, works by other artists and spontaneous interventions. Published on the occasion of the collaborators’ first institutional exhibition in Europe, Slice a Slanted Arc into Dry Paper Sky at Kunsthalle Zürich, this volume is a curated introduction to the artists’ world, thought and, most importantly, their particular brand of humor.
