Victoria Ahmadizadeh's show, free & content, was installed at The Depot Gallery in Richmond from April 8-24, 2016. All of the works included in free & content are based off of poetry that was published in a small zine of the same title. Viewers were invited to take a zine with them from the exhibition. The forms explore the text's ability to evoke visual imagery. Together in the space, the works become their own poem, made of objects, with blank white spaces becoming the pauses between words.
