The Collage Edition May 2024 featuring Dorsa Ahari

New Work Heroes Wish Frame

Welcome to the first edition of the New Work Heroes Wish Frame. It contains four unique pieces of art. Change your Wish Frame according to the phase you are going through in your life. It could be four days, four weeks or even four months.

Each piece of artwork represents a stage of the Hero’s Journey. The complexity of life may be captured by looking at it in stages alone. But the beauty of the Hero’s Journey is that it can inspire and empower. This is the aim of this extraordinary collaboration.

I hope these four works of art inspire you, give you strength and accompany you on your own Hero’s Journey: your life.

the four artworks:

The Heroe's Journey

Abyssos

The first artwork, Abyssos, explores the struggles and uncertainties faced at the beginning of any significant journey. This piece is predominantly dark, but with subtle hints of hope. It symbolises the feeling of being stuck and drowning in fear, but also shows a glimmer of hope that encourages perseverance. As Dorsa describes: "If you hold on to that glimmer of hope, you will find a way to make your soul or heart sparkle."

Metamorphosis

The second artwork, Metamorphosis, captures the theme of transformation and rebirth. This bright and light piece features images of butterflies, symbolising the profound change from doubt to self-discovery. It illustrates the journey from caterpillar to butterfly, emphasising the importance of following an emotion until it becomes clear and fully embodied.

Agon

The third artwork, Agon, explores the balancing of inner energies and the overcoming of deep-rooted fears. This composition includes a female body with elements representing both male and female energies, and features a serpent, a symbol of transformation and rebirth. Dorsa explains that "as humans we need to have our feminine and masculine energies in balance. And that is what is incredibly out of balance in the world right now". This artwork highlights the need to embrace and harmonise both sides within ourselves.

Lusis

The fourth and final artwork, Lusis, reflects the integration and acceptance of different aspects of the self. Harmonious and pastel, it depicts two figures merging into one, symbolising the culmination of the journey where different parts of oneself are accepted and integrated. This piece represents a state of balance and harmony, signifying the mastery of one's inner world and the acceptance of both strengths and vulnerabilities.

meet THE ARTIST: DORSA AHARI

Dorsa is an Iranian conceptual artist based in Berlin. A self-taught artist and engineer, she embarks on a journey through collage, diving into the complex realms of the human mind and soul, creating a strong connection between inner feelings and the world around us. Inspired by the different cultures and places she’s encountered — from the lively streets of Iran to the bustling cities of London and Berlin — Dorsa aims to capture the universal human experience.

Like a beautiful melody, her collages resonate with viewers, inviting them to reflect on the threads that connect us all.

In a changing world, through her collages she hopes to illuminate the dance between our thoughts and the world, sparking conversations that transcend borders and boundaries. Ultimately, her art is an exploration, an invitation and a celebration of the wonders that come when we focus on what makes us human.

“For me, collage is a way of communicating and transferring the journey of my soul into the physical world. Using pieces that already exist; recycling unwanted pages and magazines. It is like engineering but in a soulful way. I want to encourage the minds of my audience to question their thought processes and not be afraid of change.”
