Hojat Amani: Tracing angel's flight
April 26 - May 7, 2013
Opening: Friday April 26, 4-8 pm
Have you ever tried to find an "angel"? If yes, what was it, how did you identify it, where and, most importantly, how did you search for it? What creative strategies and practices did you use? Did you try to catch and trap it or did you observe, inagine, appropriate and document? What exactly? What did you find in the emptiness around you, in things, in yourself, in your friend's or enemy's reflection in the river of time, and so on?
Iranian artist Hojat Amani uses the universal figure of an angel to find his second (light, dark, physical, mental, any kind that seems not to exist in reality) half.
