Assar Art Gallery Dec 2012 Mojtaba Tajik New Collection 04


مجموعه جدید

جعبه های مجتبی تاجیک از خرت و پرت های زیادی پر و خالی شده تا به همین جا که اکنون می بینیم رسیده اند. از جعبه های جادویی  مانند با فضای سورریالیستی گرفته تا انبوهی از خنزر پنزرها و اشیای تاریخی تا به کفش های امروزی.

 نقاش در این مجموعه محتویات ذهنی جعبه ها را به سمت واقع گرایی سوق داده و با تمهیدات نقاشانه امکان خوانش ذهنی از آن ها را گشوده است. جعبه های رنگی، کفش های زنانه و مردانه با دقت پردازش و اجرا شده اند.  او با درشت نمایی، زرق و برق کفش ها و تمام بار بصری آثار را در میدان دید مخاطب قرار می دهد. نقطه عطف کارهای تاجیک (در مجموعه جدیدش) درست همین جاست؛ ترسیم واقعیت شکل ها برای رسیدن به ماهیت سورریال آن ها. به بیان ساده تر نقاش در این مجموعه به دنبال سورریالیسم پنهان واقع گرایی است. 

او بر جذابیت کفش ها تاکید فراوانی کرده تا لذت بصری مضاعفی از آن ها ساطع شود.  مخاطب در این رویارویی کام می گیرد، این شعف بصری در ما پیش می رود و از راه دیدن در ما گسترش می یابد. چیزی که اکنون در من شکل گرفته تماما بیرون جعبه است.  نقاش بازی می کند، هم با ما هم با جعبه ها.  باز و بسته می کند تا وسوسه در نگاه ما شکل بگیرد. این رفت و بازگشت بیهوده را پایانی نیست،  این درد کالاها و به گمانم راز جعبه هاست...

New Collection
Mojtaba Tajik’s boxes have been filled and emptied of many odds and ends to get to where they are today.  From magical boxes with a surrealistic feel to piles of junk to historical objects to today’s shoes. 
The artist has directed the subjective contents of the boxes towards realism in this collection and through his painterly technique has created the aptitude for a subjective decoding.  Colorful boxes, women’s and men’s shoes have been delicately and skillfully painted.  He emphasizes the flamboyance of the shoes and the visual power of his compositions by magnifying what he intends to expose.  And this is exactly the turning point in Tajik’s new collection: drawing the reality of shapes for the sake of their surrealistic nature.  Simply put, the artist is after the hidden surrealism behind realism.  
He has stressed very much on the beauty of the shoes in order to achieve a magnified visual pleasure.  The audience thrives from this encounter; the visual joy continues and extends further through seeing. What has now been shaped in me is completely outside the box.  The artist plays, with us and with the boxes.  He opens and closes them so that our sight is tempted. There is no end to the journey of wavering; this is perhaps the pain of getting fixated on commodities as I suppose is the secret of the boxes... 
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.
