Wallplay and IFAC are proud to announce Separation Anxiety, an ongoing campaign of collaborative exhibitions that discuss art and the fine line which bridges technology and society in the super-modern age. Affirming itself as a juggernaut, Separation Anxiety is the exhibition that never ends.

Award-winning, digital artist and animator Marjan Moghaddam will be showing 2 pieces in Separation Anxiety, a group exhibition curated by the International Fine Arts Consortium at Wallplay. For the exhibition, Ms. Moghaddam will be showing one of her digital paintings, Floodplain, and premiering a new animation, “Sometimes Up, Sometimes Down”. The show opens during the Armory Arts weekend on Saturday March 8th, 7-10pm, at Wallplay, 118 Orchard Street (corner of Delancey), in the Lower East Side. #Separationanxiety, #Wallplay, #IFAC.

Marjan Moghaddam works with 3d animation and Motion Capture of improvised dance, Martial Arts and gesticulation. Her distinctive style employs a 3d CG Cubist and Futuristic form of figuration blended with computer-generated textures, fractals, and scientific images (NASA and USGS). Her paintings are additionally altered using sonic sculpting of visuals through audio- triggering of various parameters. The lush, cinematic, postmillenial digital paintings, which she creates as still and time based media, also include a unique narratology that blends text in the form of social media style posts with storytelling and poetry. Her award-winning projects employ proprietary computer-generative techniques alongside artistic ones. For Separation Anxiety she will be showing “Floodplain”, a still digital painting, and premiering “Sometimes up and Sometimes Down”, a Motion-Captured, 3d animation with a score by Kyle Bobby Dunn. The primary thematic premise for these works is a heroic, political, global, cathartic, and expressionistic premise in which imagined worlds of great monumentality mirror a collective and individual zeitgeist that is emerging out of our hybrid machine and human paradigm.
