Tehran

سـی

شاید انگیزه اصلی این نمایشگاه زمانی در من ایجاد شد که در آستانه سی سالگی بودم. سی سالگی برایم بلوغ ذهن، دگر شدگی، از مرحله ای به مرحله دیگر رفتن و برایم تداعی داستان سیمرغ عطار را می کند.

پرندگانی که تصمیم به یافتن سیمرغ که در قله کوه قاف زندگی می کند میگیرند. پس از طی طریق و تحمل مرارت، تنها سی مرغ توفیق رسیدن به قله کوه را می يابند، و آنجا عکس خود را در آب می بینند ودر می یابند سیمرغ خود آنها هستند. با خود می اندیشم این پرنده ها بعد از رسیدن به هدفشان باید هدف دیگری داشته باشند و به سمت قاف دیگری پرواز کنند. اگر ساکن بمانند٬ تحلیل می روند و خورده می شوند.

کلمه مرغ پیشترها به طور خاص به مفهوم پرنده نر یا ماده بود. اما امروزه بیشتر شاید تداعی مرغهای بسته بندی شده در فروشگاه های مواد غذایی را میکند. پرنده ای بی بال و پر و بدون سر که توانایی پرواز و رسیدن به هدفی را ندارد. میز شام سیمرغ٬ سی مرغ ایستاده در بشقابهای برنزی٬ بزک شده و رنگارنگ٬ همانند مدلهایی در سالن مد هستند که تزئینات خود را به نمایش گذاشته اند.

تحت تاثیر کلمه ی سـیـمرغ بودم که یک روز مـرغی درسـته را برای پخت غـذا خـریـداری کردم. مشغول پاک کردن و خرد کردن آن بودم که خود را بی تفاوت و ظالمانه در حال سلاخی کردن دیدم. در حالی که به دنبال دلیل این حس بودم تصویر خودم را در لباس سفید عروس در مراسمی آیینی دیدم که در آن نمایشِ قربانی کردن سی مرغ٬ برای تغییر و گذر به مرحله ای جدید از زندگی ام (سی سالگی) در آن اجرا می شد.

Thirty

Perhaps the main motive for holding this exhibition was developed in me when I was on the verge of turning thirty. To me, turning thirty means mental maturity, alteration, stepping from one stage into another and eventually reminds me of the story of “Simurgh”, inspired by a mythical Iranian bird of the same name, meaning thirty birds. 

In the original story written by “Attar” (a renowned classical Iranian poet), a number of birds decide to fly to the highest point in the universe (Ghaaf Mountain), in search of a supposedly sovereign bird called “Simurgh” (in Persian Si means thirty and murgh means chicken/bird). After a lot of pain and endeavor, only thirty of the birds survive the passage, who then see their own reflection in the water and realize that Simurgh, is in fact themselves all together as a team. The idea behind this installation was that achieving goals should not mean reaching the final point of the path, as goals are in fact the checkpoints. After arriving at each checkpoint, you should set yet another goal, fly again and reach the summit of other mountains. If birds stay still, they will eventually decay and dwindle. 

In the past, the word “Murgh” could refer to birds of any kind, regardless of gender, but in the present time, it is associated with a pre-packed chicken, sliced or as a whole, available in supermarkets and ready to be consumed. A decorated bird with its feathers plucked, headless, aimless and incapable of flying. Simurgh dining table, thirty birds standing in bronze plates, colorful and embellished, looks like a runway of models, showing off their ornaments and bijouterie.

I was still under the impression of the word Simurgh, when one day I bought a whole chicken to cook. I was cutting the chicken into pieces when suddenly found myself slaughtering a creature so cruelly and so indifferently. While looking for the reason why I felt like this, I imagined myself wearing a white wedding dress in a ritual ceremony sacrificing thirty birds as a symbol and allegory of transition and change into a new stage of my life; turning “Thirty”.

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.
