Those not in our circle
Are blind to our venture
Three large, painted floral jugs lie on three beds. Each jug is filled with water and through the reflection in the water we can see a film. The film shows the goddess
ANAHITA, the legendary and mythical goddess of water who lives near springs and rivers To see it, the spectator must take the trouble to bend a little and search for its
Dream -like imagery.
January 2004,“ For BAM”, a group show taken placing a warehouse in the center of Tehran about the tragic disaster in “BAM”, the historic city on
South-east of Iran best known for its 2000 year old citadel, which was struck and devastated by a massive earthquake on Friday 26 December 2003 with the death
Toll estimation of 50000 from a population of formerly 85000. The historic citadel has been largely destroyed and it is said that 80% of the city’s buildings has turned into rubble .My contribution in collaboration with 6 other fellow artists was:
- A narrative performance symbolic of the incident afflicted the city of ”AM” using our own shadows behind a screen,
- Selling our works while going round the warehouse acting like street hawkers offering our goods (I .e. artifact made by ourselves),
- An installation of 7 crying angles, “The Fallen Angles”, in a dimly lit space by means of an arched shaped purple-blue neon-light installed on top of a wall toward which all the angles were facing. (The angles are now have become part of a time based project in which they are planted in the ground on a
Spot in nature outside Tehran where they will be visited on a monthly basis to document the changes they have gone through, i.e. getting weathered, the
Growth of flowers in the vicinity and so on. by means of photographing and filming and every time a new piece of trinket will be added to the lot.)
There were also displays of video & slide projection installations and performances by the other participant artists.
All proceedings went towards disaster relief.
The exhibition was sponsored by The Center for Theatrical Arts and The Center For Visual Arts.
. 2003 Environmental Art Exhibition, Polour, Iran
An event which took place in Polour, a small town at the foothills of Damavand
Mountain near Tehran. Amongst the participant artists a number of artists from abroad were also invited. I and 3 other artists; RAMIN HAERIZADEH, ROCKNEDDIN HAERIZADEH and ALIREZA MA'SSOUMI painted our faces, picked up rubbish littering a river-bank and collected it in burlap bags hanging on wooden sticks over our shoulders. While walking into the town collecting more rubbish on our way, we distributed flyers on which was written the theme from the billboard project done by the artist Patrick MIMRAN for the 2003 Vencie Biennale: Art is not where you think you are going to find it. Eventually we left our bags of rubbish at the location from which garbage is picked up my the municipality
