Seyhoun Art Gallery Nov 2013 Monir Sehat Disjointed 01

The language of abstraction speaks of the moment of explosion; it is the language of uprooting and eradication. It is the utmost joy of destruction in creation; yet, this language is not the common parole of our paintings today, Abstraction is the last resort left to an artist to get to  his/her target and while devastating everything, he/she can create something afresh in his/her own desired way.

In today’s horrifying and sharp-edged world, Monir Sehhat’s works portray the very heavy horrendous blows of a cruel time as we witness it in silence; a time which is rooted in the past and looks up to the future through the destruction of the present. Her works have adopted a completely abstract tone and a contemporary expression which to the linear classic viewer may seem unsettling and hard to swallow.

Her goal is to portray human rebellion, the ugly and beautiful relationships around us. Her visual world is hanging from threads which are tied to an uncertain and dark origin; pending worlds in geometric shapes which portray the suspended human, hanging from toothed threads, a threat which may lead us nowhere - once speculated- except to the world of the artist who created them. Shapes open ways to other shapes through which one can find a path out of disunity.

To build anything one must destroy its past and part with it, ‘cause departed is the past itself.

Hamed Behrouzkar / Nov 2013

زبان انتزاع، بیانگر زمانِ لحظه ی انفجار است. زبان انتزاع، زبان برکندن از ریشه و بنیان است. زبان انتزاع نهایت مرتبه ی لذتِ تخریب در آفرینش است. زبان انتزاع زبان ادبیات جاریِ نقاشی های امروز ما نیست. زبان انتزاع  در نقاشی آخرین تیر ترکش یک نقاش است که به هدف می کوبد تا همه چیز را گسسته کند و دوباره درهم آمیزد، آن گونه، که خود می خواهد و می سازد.

در فضای دندانه دارو سهمگین جهان امروز، نقاشی دوختهای انتزاعی"منیر صحت"  بازنمایی همان ضربتهای هراسناک زمان است که ما در سکوت شاهد آن هستیم.

در آثار او میتوانی  پیوستگی وگسیختگی را توأمان نظاره گرباشی با رجعتی به گذشته یا اشارتی به آینده، اما اوتصویرگر زمانِ حالِ انهدام است، زمان حالی که از گذشته ریشه یافته و با تخریبِ اکنون خود؛درآینده امید را جستجوگر است. آن هم با زبانی کاملاً انتزاعی ولهجه ای معاصر، که هضم آن را برای طیف بینندۀ ادبیات محورامروز گاهی ثقیل می گرداند.سعی او در بازنمایی عصیان آدمی است. سعی او با "زبان دوخته شده ی انتزاعی" امروز، در نشان دادن بازتاب های روابط  زشت و زیبای اجتماعی پیرامون مان نهفته است. جهان تصویری او از هستی های آویزانی شکل یافته اند که با نخی، به مبدأی تاریک و نامعلوم  متصل اند.هستی های آویزانی در قالب اشکال هندسی که می توان معلّق بودن و بسته شدن انسان را بانخی دندانه دار و دوخته شده و گاهی آویزان تصور نمود. نخیکه اگر آن را دنبال کنید، شاید به هیچ چیزی نرسید، اما لحظۀ انهدام محذورها و انسجام مکنونات نقاش را دریابید. آنچنانکه شکلی در شکلی باز می شود تا در پسِ خود پیوستگی را از راه گسیختگی به ما نشان دهد. چرا که برای ساختن هر پدیده ای ابتدا باید به تخریب گذشته آن به پا خاست و از آن گسست. زیرا گسسته همان گذشته است.

More About Tehran

Overview and HistoryTehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city in the Middle East, with a population of fifteen million people living under the peaks of the Alborz mountain range.Although archaeological evidence places human activity around Tehran back into the years 6000BC, the city was not mentioned in any writings until much later, in the thirteenth century. It's a relatively new city by Iranian standards.But Tehran was a well-known village in the ninth century. It grew rapidly when its neighboring city, Rhages, was destroyed by Mongolian raiders. Many people fled to Tehran.In the seventeenth century Tehran became home to the rulers of the Safavid Dynasty. This is the period when the wall around the city was first constructed. Tehran became the capital of Iran in 1795 and amazingly fast growth followed over the next two hundred years.The recent history of Tehran saw construction of apartment complexes and wide avenues in place of the old Persian gardens, to the detriment of the city's cultural history.The city at present is laid out in two general parts. Northern Tehran is more cosmopolitan and expensive, southern Tehran is cheaper and gets the name "downtown."Getting ThereMehrabad airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by Imam Khomeini International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back.TransportationTehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here.The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI.Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler. Tehran has a mean rush hour starting at seven AM and lasting until 8PM in its evening version. Solution? Motorcycle taxis! They cut through the traffic and any spare nerves you might have left.People and CultureMore than sixty percent of Tehranis were born outside of the city, making it as ethnically and linguistically diverse as the country itself. Tehran is the most secular and liberal city in Iran and as such it attracts students from all over the country.Things to do, RecommendationsTake the metro to the Tehran Bazaar at the stop "Panzda Gordad". There you can find anything and everything -- shoes, clothes, food, gold, machines and more. Just for the sight of it alone you should take a trip there.If you like being outside, go to Darband and drink tea in a traditional setting. Tehranis love a good picnic and there are plenty of parks to enjoy. Try Mellat park on a friday (fridays are public holidays), or maybe Park Daneshjou, Saaii or Jamshidieh.Remember to go upstairs and have a look around, always always always! The Azadi Tower should fit the bill; it was constructed to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.Tehran is also full of museums such as:the Contemporary Art Museumthe Abghine Musuem (glass works)the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museumthe museum of carpets (!!!)Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniaturesand most stunning of all,the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.Text by Steve Smith.
