Majorité invisible is composed of a series of large format drawings and an installation in the middle of the gallery space. The exhibition deals with the precarious conditions of minorities in Canada, particularly the discrimination and segregation experienced by visible minorities and Indigenous peoples.
Zeraati’s work is not a discourse but an open creative space for personal and collective reflection which is based on her perception and understanding of the country she lives in since 2010. Two bodies of work are presented: one based on the technique of origami and the other on pencil on paper. Her approach takes as a starting point the social situation of Indigenous and immigrant populations and is permeated by the artist’s questioning of the conditions of minorities without it being at the work's forefront.
Iranian artist Shabnam Zeraati lives and works in Montreal. She completed her studies in graphic design in Tehran in 2002 and obtained a degree from the École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs de Strasbourg (ENSAD) in 2008. Since, she has participated in many group exhibitions at the international level, such as Tape Modernex (Berlin) and the Kunstfestival Begehungen in 2011; Open Here (2010) and 601 Art Book Project (2008, 2009) in Seoul; Regional in Switzerland (2009), in France (2010) and in Germany (2012) and the Semaine culturelle iranienne (2010) in Strasbourg; Azad Art Galerie (2011) in Tehran.
