In Ramin, Rokni and Hesam’s art making, production is performance and the performance is a collective action leading to dance, art, and politics. The trio investigate a model of how to collaborate, translating it into multiple forms which often evolves around artists and people from different walks of life. Through this body assembly, creating a self-sustaining creative life; how to build an aesthetic and undermine it; how to be politically acute and humorous, generous and eccentric.

Their work is often referred to as a landscape where the complex nature of processing is integrated in the nested system that forms the landscape of their practice. Their home is a working studio which is also a filmset and movie theatre, a museum and research center. The house informs their art as it results from both collective and individual endeavor. The artists are not a distinct group or collective, there is no name or label for the trio as their practice often evolves around other artists and friends.

Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian's early collaborative practice formed as early as 1999 in Tehran, though the artists reside in the U.A.E since 2009.

The collective has presented solo exhibitions at NYU, Abu Dhabi (2022); Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt (2020); Frye Art Museum, Seattle (2019); Officine Grandi Riparazioni (OGR), Turin (2018); MACBA, Barcelona (2017); Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), Boston (2015); Kunsthalle Zurich (2015) and Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art, Copenhagen (2015), among others. They are currently exhibiting a solo Exhibition at CCC OD, Tours, France.
