نمایشگاه آثار " طاها قوچ کانلو " با عنوان " شب پیداست " خرداد 1400 گالری شیرین
امروزه بسیاری از مردم با زندگی در شهرهای بزرگ، زیر گنبدی بزرگ به اسم آلودگی نوری، ارتباطشان با آسمان گسسته شده است و ممکن است بسیاری از آنها هیچ گاه تا آخر عمر، تجربه دیدن آسمان پرستاره شب را نداشته باشند. از یاد بردن آسمان تراژدی بزرگیست زیرا آسمان همانیست که تمامی تحولات زمین ما را در خاطره دارد و تمامی نشانه هایش در زندگی تمامی ملت ها از دیرباز نقش بازی کرده است. آسمان همانیست که هنوز هم انسان های عاشق خود را از حصار شهرها خارج کرده تا با نظاره این طبیعت شگفت انگیز، درست همان چیزی را ببینند که پیشینیان شان دیده اند و یا با چند ساعت تأخیر، تقریبا همانی را ببینند که اقوام مختلف در جایی دیگر از این کره خاکی، آن را به نظاره نشسته اند. بر همین اساس از سالها پیش تصمیم گرفتم تا با سفر به نقاط منحصر به فرد در ایران و جهان و عکاسی از مناظری بدیع زیر آسمان شب، این تجربه را با مردم شهری به اشتراک بگذارم تا این تصاویر پلی باشد برای پیوند دوباره انسان و آسمان و این همان مسیریست در آن قدم برم یداریم. ،« یک مردم، یک آسمان » که من و همکارانم در پروژه بین المللی جهان در شب، با شعار مجموعه ای از تصاویر که شما را با من در سفر به مکان هایی .« شب پیداست » حالا در اینجا، درست در میان هیاهو و تمام نورهای شهر تهران با مناظر بدیع، همراه می کند و زیر چتر پر ستاره آسمان قرار می دهد. اینجا می توان روبروی هر منظره ایستاد و خود را درون آن دید. اکنون در این فضا شاید راحت تر بتوان مفهوم این جمله را درک کرد که
شب جهانی را پنهان و عالمی را آشکار میکند
طاها قوچ کانلو
Today, most of the people, due to living under the dome of light pollution in big cities, are disconnected from the night sky and many may not even experience watching the starry night for the rest of their lives. Forgetting the night sky is a great tragedy because the sky's the one that remembers all evolutions of our earth and for a long time, all its signs have played important roles in the lives of all nations. The sky's the one that still takes its lovers out of the city to explore this amazing nature, see exactly what their predecessors saw, or with a few hours’ delay, to see almost the same objects as different tribes anywhere on the planet, watching it. Based on this, since many years ago, I decided to travel to unique places in Iran and the world and photograph from beautiful landscapes under the night sky, to share this experience with the people of the cites so that these images be a bridge for reconnecting human beings and sky and this is the path that my colleagues and I take in the international project of The World at Night, with the Peacemaking slogan "One people, one sky". Now here, right in the midst of the noise and all the lights of Tehran, "night reveals". A collection of images that will take you on a journey with me to places with exquisite views and place you under the umbrella of the starry night. Now, instead of a linguistic description, you can stand in front of each scene and see yourself inside it. Now, in this space, it may be easier to understand the meaning of this sentence: "Night hides the world and reveals the universe".
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.
