second half of August will be reserved for photographers;
With “The Emphasized Six” a current photo installation (and interactive ) by Babak Haj MohammadAli, Ghazaleh Zeinalpour & Nima Maghsoudi and the upcoming show by Hamid Janipour & Roozbeh Roozbehani called “Mourning for the dead sister”, and their photographs from Istanbbul, Turkey.
Aaran gallery has hosted Solo Video exhibition ofAliyar Rasti. Titled “PRO.LOGUE”. Opening at Aaran Gallery on 21st August.
Questioning notion of time, Aliyar Rasti will present six video art works that have been in making for almost two years. These works are a play between staged and documentary image-making; by documenting real time events in Long Takes and deluding the essence of time, he attempts to create loops. Continuous moving images that are trapped in time.
He writes : Occurrences do not begin but are a continuous eternity
In passage of time we arrive to a point of occurrence and experience it. Based on our experiences we categorize occurrences and create borders. Borders break down the polarity of Being and credence repetition.
