A solo exhibition of work by Peybak, the “unified duo” of Iranian artists Peyman Barabadi and Babak Alebrahim Dehkordi.

Peyman Barabadi and Babak Alebrahim Dehkordi, both born in 1984, have been working together as the “unified duo” of Peybak since December 20, 2001. They start working on different parts of every piece together, until they both declare it finished. When asked who
feeds into their work, and who is their artistic source, they answer that they have been «influenced by Iranian poets, by stories» and add that they do not possess «any reference». Peybak’s “atemporal works, where the gesture’s energy competes with the stroke’s precision,
where the same gets confused with the unique, chaos with order”, are inspired by Persian poetry, mythology and miniature paintings.


Peybak’s work has been exhibited in various solo and group exhibitions at GP & N Vallois Gallery (Paris, France), group exhibitions at Domaine Vranken Pommery (Reims, France), “Animal Figures” at Saint André Abbey-Center for Contemporary Art (Meymac, France), “Back to the Future” (Paris, France), The Armory Show Art Fair (New York), Fiac (Paris, 2015, 2016 and 2019), a curated group exhibition at Le Tripostal (Lille, France), Art Geneve (Geneva, Switzerland), Abu Dhabi Art Fair (in the curated section), Art Dubai and Contemporary Istanbul. Additionally, Peybak’s work has been featured in Dastan’s booth at Sydney Contemporary 2017, GP & N Vallois Gallery’s booth at Drawing Now (Paris, 2018) and Asia Now Paris, 2020).

About the Hosts

Dastan Gallery

Dastan Gallery

Dastan's original space, Dastan’s Basement, was established in 2012 in Tehran, Iran. The Basement is dedicated to exhibiting emerging and experimental Iranian art. In October 2015, Dastan opened its first "standard" space, Dastan+2, within walking distance of the Basement to showcase works by established Iranian artists and masters.

Since the opening of its primary space, Dastan’s Basement, in 2012, Dastan has continuously hosted pop-up curated exhibitions around the city of Tehran under the title Dastan:Outside, including shows at Sam Art (in Sam Center Mall), V-Gallery, and Shirin Confectionary's building. The program, aimed to extend the gallery’s program outside of its regular venues, features exhibitions that are usually site-specific and mostly involve experimental and non-traditional formats of exhibiting art.
