On-going is an exhibition with work by Sirous Namazi at Galerie Nordenhake in Stockholm. Through mixture of material and media (such as huge metallic installation pieces, goods from supermarkets and collage oil paintings) the Iranian-born artist focus on the urban landscape in the context of instability and failure, in his latest exhibition “New Work”. And as he has addressed throughout his artistical practice, Sirous Namazi continues extrapolating on the themes of social structures and patterns, architecture, consumption and detritus.
This is what the artist has to say about his on-going work:
Issues around belonging, consumption, chaos and order interest me. The artistic process has as much to do with demolishing and undermining as it does with creating and building. Many of my works use everyday objects. These Ready-mades originate in the urban landscape but become sculptures when presented in new contexts, namely galleries and institutions. I attempt to open up for new interpretations and discussions that affect contemporary issues.
