Hiva Alizadeh > Nomad Chants / Canti nomadi

Comunicato

 

La galleria The Flat - Massimo Carasi è orgogliosa di ospitare nei propri spazi la prima mostra personale in Europa dell'artista curdo-iraniano Hiva Alizadeh.

Alizadeh (nato a Kerman nel 1989) ha iniziato la sua carriera seguendo il percorso del padre, cineasta sperimentale.

Da allora, Hiva ha raggiunto una forma di espressione più sintetizzata e personale che combina nuovi media ispirandosi alla tradizione decorativa della tessitura del tappeto tipica della sua regione.

La morfologia del paesaggio iraniano e le frequenti visite dell'artista in aree isolate del paese inducono Alizadeh a riprodurre e reinterpretare i colori della natura, utilizzando per le sue composizioni vibranti ciocche

di capelli sintetici dagli sgargianti colori.

Un'altra sorgente di grande ispirazione per questo artista sono le vetrate delle moschee persiane e i riflessi di luce che esse proiettano sul pavimento. Molti altri elementi trasfigurati creano un immaginario complesso, dai sofisticati intrecci coloristici. Le ciocche vaporose si sovrappongono ed intersecano generando ritmi, voci e suoni di cui il background percettivo dell’artista riecheggia.

 

The Flat - Massimo Carasi gallery is proud to host the first solo exhibition in Europe of the Kurdish-Iranian artist Hiva Alizadeh.
Alizadeh (born in Kerman in 1989) began his career following the path of his father, an experimental filmmaker.

Since then, Hiva has achieved a more synthesized and personal form of expression that combines new media inspired by the decorative tradition of carpet weaving typical of his region.

The morphology of the Iranian landscape and the frequent visits of the artist in isolated areas of the country, lead Alizadeh to reproduce and reinterpret the colors of nature, using for his vibrant compositions strands of synthetic hair with bright colors.
Another source of great inspiration for this artist is the stained glass windows of Persian mosques and the reflections of light they project onto the floor.

Many other transfigured elements create a complex imaginary, with sophisticated coloristic weaves.

The vaporous strands overlap and intersect, generating rhythms, voices and sounds of which the artist's perceptive background echoes.

Self-trained film-maker/artist  Hiva Alizadeh started his career writing and directing experimental films and documentaries before shifting his focus to the creation of sculptural (hair) works and installations. His work has been exhibited at numerous Iranian galleries and debuted internationally at the 2018 Bienvenue Art Fair in Paris, France. The artist first European exhibition, titled “Nomad chants“ will be held in September at The Flat - Massimo Carasi Milan. Among the past exhibitions:  VOLTA 15  - The Flat - Massimo Carasi, Basel, Switzerland (2019);  Thin Three-Dimensionality / Sottile tridimensionalità, The Flat - Massimo Carasi, Milan - Italy (2018);  Collezion SPRING, Museum of Contemporary Art, KERMAN, Iran (2018);  Forty width Width Fifty, Aknoon Art Gallery, ESFAHAN, Iran (2018);   Scenery,  Shirin Gallery of Contemporary Art, Teheran,Iran (2017);   Mirror Calligraphy , Ventisei Gallery of Contemporary Art, Teheran, Iran (2015); Tree, Shahkaar Gallery of Contemporary Art, Kerman, Iran (2013).
