Ghormeh Sabzi in V&A


After Campbell's Soup by Andy Warhol.

Last Friday night there was a feast of Iranian Contemporary Art and Food in V&A. The smell of Ghormeh Sabzi had filled the museum. Sadly it was so crowded that I missed the food, the dance and the fashion part of the programme. I managed to attend Abbas Kiarostami and Seifollah Samadian?s conversation with Geoff Andrew and watch two short films by Kiarostami -- Moonlight and the Lagoon. At the moment his choice of medium is digital video. Kiarostami himself shot the films in northern Iran, near the Caspian Sea. Apparently in Moonlight he tries to capture the relationship between frogs and the moon on a rainy night!
