Over six decades, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (1922 - 2019) investigated the intricate geometries of her Iranian heritage, reconfiguring traditional craft techniques to explore the philosophical, poetic, and perceptual possibilities of interlocking primary forms.

This film was produced on the occasion of Monir's first exhibition at James Cohan, Mirror-works and Drawings (2004-2016), on view from January 29 through March 6 at 48 Walker Street and January 29 through February 27 at 291 Grand Street.
