|Tehran art exhibit reflects fantasies of modern man||
TEHRAN – Conceptual artist Puya Aryanpur’s latest collection, which reflects part of the fantasies of modern man, is currently on display at Tehran’s Boom Gallery.
The collection, which comprises two huge sculptures and twenty circular-shaped stained-glass works, will be on show until June 4 in an exhibition entitled “Temporary Dreams in Temporary Fantasy”.
Director of Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art Majid Mollanoruzi; Persepolis coach Ali Daei; artists Aidin Aghdashlu, Taha Behbahani and Habibollah Sadeqi; and actors Reza Kianian, Farhad Aiish and Behzad Farahani attended the opening ceremony of the exhibit on Friday.
“The idea of being temporary forms the major theme of the exhibit,” Says Aryanpur, “I have chosen circular-shaped canvases to show suspension, since incomplete images and suspension are emphasized more on a circular shape.”
“I depict the world the way I wish; I depict the world the wrong way I see it. So this is how I portray the fantasy of creation in the geometry of my thought,” he added.
Mollanoruzi regards Aryanpur as a young artist with a modern outlook in his paintings, “Young artists can renovate the older, traditional art of the country with their modern artistic perspectives”.
The gallery is located at 11 Armaghan Alley, Vali-e Asr Ave, near Niayesh Highway.
