Assar Art Gallery April 2012 Mohammad Hamzeh Crumples 04

With 14 works on display, Hamzeh reveals the contrast between the true and the mannered self by exposing his crumpled human figures once again.  In this collection of the most acclaimed Crumples series, the portraits are distorted and exaggerated as the initial step and then crumpled to suggest a more correct human figure, unlike his previous works, where he deformed and exaggerated the proportionately drawn figures through crumpling.

To Hamzeh, the crumples or the wrinkles as he calls them define the passage of time and the pressure imposed by either the society or self. He sees any representation by the humans as a mannered image. One becomes more wrinkled and metaphorically more complicated in the process of aging and therefore reveal less of their true selves. Principally, the crumpled figures explore what is real and what is true, real being the mannered version and true the actual self.  

The work on the Crumples series started in 2001 as a series of works on paper that were later privately sold to the Iran Heritage Foundation in the UK.  In 2003, a collection of 14 acrylic-on-cardboard self-portraits and 7 crumpled up heads were exhibited at Etemad Art Gallery. Subsequently, the crumples started to take on an individualistic role and popped up as crumpled up figures against a painted background. However, as his works started to become larger, he switched to canvas -- his practiced medium since 2007.  The work on the series is still in progress.   

Born in Tehran, Iran in 1963, Mohammad Hamzeh started painting under the supervision of the Iranian Master, Aydeen Aghdashloo in 1983. He has been part of various national and international exhibitions ever since his first solo exhibition at the Golestan Art Gallery in Tehran in 1992.

这是一个概述Tehran

Overview and History

Tehran 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 There

Mehrabad 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.

Transportation

Tehran 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 Culture

More 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, Recommendations

Take 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 Museum

the Abghine Musuem (glass works)

the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museum

the museum of carpets (!!!)

Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniatures

and most stunning of all,

the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.
