Lexicon of Longing is a solo exhibition of artists' books and prints by Golnar Adili which grapple with deconstructing and reconstructing past traumas. Adili's work uses family photographs, language, and play to reshape memory, experiences of displacement, and identity.

Forgetting and relearning both English and Persian multiple times has made language a fascinating reference in Adili's work. Persian poetry, as well as biographical text investigating a landscape of longing, have provided a valuable context for examining language formally. These investigations include physically building words and letters with a multitude of materials. In doing so, Adili uses architecture, book arts, and installation to distort and blur the lines between design, craft, and fine art.

More announcements and details about the show can be found at www.isprojectsfl.com/on-view along with a virtual gallery tour and gallery shop.
