نمایشگاه در پیش رو، منتخب آثار ارزندهای است از پنج هنرمند مجسمه ساز است که به کوشش آقای مجتبی رمزی گردآوری شده و گالری شیرین مفتخر به نمایش این نمایشگاه با عنوان روایتهای حلقه است
هنرمندان و گرداورنده این نمایشگاه درباره آثار هنریشان اینگونه گفته اند
من ساختن مجسمه را به شکل تجربی و همزمان با آموزش آن فرا گرفتم؛ به تدریج و در معاشرتی هنرمندانه با شاگردانم که به این کار عشق میورزیدند. بعدها این اتفاق در فضایی به نام "آتلیه حلقه" پی گرفته شد. با همراهی دوستانی از قبل و یارانی تازه وارد. از آن زمان بیش از یک دهه میگذرد، سالیانی که نان و خنده و گِل و گچ و فلز قوت غالب ما بود، تا امروز که بسیاری از همان شاگردان، آتلیه مستقل خودشان را بنا گذاشتند و به سامان شدند. روایتهای حلقه، تصویری از یک گفتمان استاد و شاگردی است در نشر مهارت و انگیزه، با سرفصلی به غایت خلاصه: سختکوش باشید، صبور باشید، مستقل فکر کنید، بر این مدار بمانید و درستکار باشید
مجتبی رمزی – مرداد۱۳۹۸
تو نه چنانی که منم، من نه چنانم که تویی، تو نه بر آنی که منم، من نه بر آنم که تویی، من همه در حکم توام، تو همه در خون منی
هویت دستها بر همه پوشیده بود ما ضعیف و آسیبپذیر بودیم و هستیم. دستهایی بیچهره و قدرتمند در پی شکل دادن آنچه میخواهند، هستند و ما منفعل و وامانده. هویت ما انفعال ماست
مجموعه رویا براساس یک آرزو از دوران کودکی شکل گرفته است. داشتن موجودی فراطبیعی. آرزویی که همچنان با من است
دیوهایی که در توهم من حضور دارند، فاقد شخصیت شر و شیطانی و کاملا انسانیاند. آنها مانند من ناراحت میشوند، میترسند و به هیجان میآیند. دیوهای بزرگ و کوچکی که از ساحتهای مختلف زندگی نشئت میگیرند و گاه مانند کودک درونم نیاز به شیطنت و بازی دارند و گاه سخن از ترسهایم میگویند، اما حقیقی اند

This Exhibition is a selection of works by five sculptor artists, curated by Mojtaba Ramzi
Shirin Gallery is proud to present this exhibition as the Ring narrative.
Artists and collectors of this exhibition have said about their artwork:
I started sculpting in an experimental way while teaching the technique. In collaboration with old friends and new pals, in an artistic company with my students who were loving this career, later it continued in a space named "Ring Atelier." It's already been one decade since where we started, the years that bread, laugh, plaster, clay, and metal were our main portion, up to now that many of those students have their studios.
Ring's narratives is a visual image from a master-student discourse for publishing motivation and skills with a very brief index :
-stay on this circuit and be honest.
Moji Ramzi, July 2019, Tehran
you are not how I am. I am not how you are. you don't follow my will, and I don't follow yours. I am all in your command you are all in my blood
the hand's identity was hidden from us. we were weak and fragile, and still, we are. Faceless and demanding hands were shaping what they want, and we, passive and helpless. Our identity is our passiveness.
The dream collection began with a wish from childhood. To have a supernatural creature. A desire that still stayed with me.
The demons inside my hallucinations are without any evil and wicked personalities, they are yet like humans. They just like me became sad, scared and excited. Grand or vile demons that origins of different moments in life; they need pranks and mischief just like my inner child. They spoke of my fears, yet they are real.

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.
