invitation card of "Recycle" by Mahmoud Bakhshi

“Recycle” is latest solo show by Mahmoud Bakhshi at Etemad Gallery – Tehran  also unveals on Friday Feb. 17, 2012. the show is curated by Mamali Shafahi

Following on from a previous exhibition, Engaged Artist at The Saatchi Gallery London, Recycle brings together previous works and a new installation by Iranian artist, Mahmoud Bakhshi. This solo exhibition concentrates on the new wave of popularity of artists and their role in contemporary society.

The main inspiration for Mahmoud Bakhshi’s works comes from political and social issues in Iran, which he sets up as propositions in his extensive practice of sculpture, mixed media, film and paintings. Bakhshi invites the viewer to seek answers in his works, as he makes connections between present and past histories of his country. Bakhshi’s works are investigations that are highly informed and experiential.

Bakhshi was born on 1977 in Tehran, Iran. Mahmoud Bakhshi has participated in several exhibitions locally and internationally at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Tehran, Barbican, London, Museum of New Art, Freiburg, Auckland Triennial and Thaddaeus Ropac in Paris. His works are part of the Tate Modern, Devi art Foundation and other private collections.
