In October 2019, Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery asked Jflemay to assist their artist Soheila Sokhanvari in designing a “Star Sculpture”. An Iranian-British artist, Soheila had an idea for a three-dimensional Star which would glow with projections of actresses from the golden age of Iranian cinema. The Star would feature in her solo exhibition “Rebel Rebel” at the Barbican Centre along with 28 of her paintings. The Covid-19 pandemic delayed Soheila’s exhibition by two years, which gave us ample time to design the sculpture and review it with Soheila, Kristin and the curator Eleanor Nairne. Finally we drew plans, perspectives and patterns in Cad to document the green floors and walls for the mural contractor. The exhibition was open and free to visit from 7 October 2022 to 26 February 2023, and was a major success.
