TEHRAN -- Iranian land artist Ahmad Nadalian has recently established a museum named after him on the Persian Gulf Island of Hormoz.
Named “Museum of Ahmad Nadalian”, the museum is actually a type of museum gallery, in which a collection of artworks are kept, while the displayed works can be put on for sale in short-term exhibitions, Nadalian told the Persian service of ISNA on Tuesday.
“I handed out my request on the establishment of a museum to the Office for Visual Arts (of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance) in summer, and it was on October 26 when the license was issued, and the museum began its activity the next day,” he added
Museum owners can also sell tickets to provide the primary expenses they need in running a museum, Nadalian said, adding that workshops can also be set up in the museum. “I am determined to hold workshops for the land artists and the local artists here.”
“Moreover, I am allowed to hang my works in a permanent exhibition in the museum, and I am also permitted to display joint works with other artists,” he added.
The museum is the Persian Gulf Land Artists House on Hormoz Island where Nadalian holds land art festivals and displays works by local artists. The house is affiliated with Pardis, a center Nadalian established in Polur in northern Iran several years ago for the creation and exhibition of art in nature.
Nadalian is famous for his land art creations in Iran and around the world. He has been living in nature for many years and searches for raw materials for his artistic creations. He later displays them in natural settings; both his concepts and the materials are related to nature.
