Performance/conceptual artist Marjan Vayghan at Gallery825's GEM exhibit on Saturday (4/11).   This installation, entitled “Prayer Rug”, was originally performed on-site at the Imam Zadeh Saleh (امامزاده صالح) shrine in Iran.  Marjan explores the concepts of interaction, servitude, collaboration, reverence, participation, and fulfillment through her creation and viewer consumption of a traditional Persian meal, which consists of freshly baked flat-bread, fresh herbs, feta cheese, whole dates, etc.
