Homa Art Gallery Oct 2015 Hamze Farhadi Can I Go Forward When My Heart Is Here 01

 نمایش "کجا بروم قلبم اینجاست" عنوان آخرین  مجموعه حمزه فرهادی ست که در گالری هما به نمایش در می آید ؛ هنرمند می کوشد تا به طور اخص درباره ی موطنش خوزستان  و به طور اعم رابطه ی زیستن ایرانی با نفت حرف بزند ، خودش معتقدست که وجه توامان تراژیک این قطعات  و شکل سانتیمانتال شده در آنها یک جور واقعگرایی ست و او را به یک دامنه ی تصویری مشخص وادار کرده اند. فرهادی در این مسیر راه های متعددی را آزموده و در بیانیه نمایش به مسیر شکل گیری این مجسمه ها اشاره دارد .فرهادی در این باره نوشته است: آنچه را می بینید در هم نشینی ذهن من میان نفت و پوچی حاصل از آن شکل گرفته است. ممکن است اینها تمثیل وهمی آن چیزی باشند که ما خوزستانی ها درباره نفت فکر می کنیم ولی به زبان نمی آوریم؛ شکل دو سویه ای از خوشبختی و شوربختی.

 این مجموعه مثل یک جور خود آموزی ست، از این ساخته ها یاد گرفتم که می شود از طریق پاسخ های متنوع به یک پرسش واحد راه خودت را دنبال کنی. تنها کاری که باید کرد این است که از چیستی اولیه آشنا زدایی کنیم یا اسیر معنای محتوم آن نشویم. منبع الهام من میراثی بود که از صنعت نفت وخاطرات خانوادگی به جا مانده اند. تنها کاری که کردم این است که این غنائم را از انبارهای قراضه بیرون کشیدم و چند سالی را با آنها کلنجار رفتم. آنها بهانه ای شدند برای اینکه جرات ماندن پیدا کنم ، شبیه این جمله ی شکسپیر : کجا بروم، قلبم اینجاست؟

Can I go forward when my heart is here | My works are the result of companionship of oil and degeneration. They could be the illusory emblem of things that we, as Khuzestan1 natives, think about the oil but not peaking about. Two edges of happiness and misery.

This collection is look like a self-learning for me. I’ve learned that you can follow your artistic way with various answers about a single question. You just should defamiliarize from primary quiddity, or we try to not to capturing with its inevitable meanings.

My inspiration is the heritage that inherited from oil industry and my family memories. I’ve just pulled out these trophies from warehouses and have struggled for some years.

They became to creatures that have inherent beauty and also, once upon a time, have technical performance. Their present silence is full of past seethe. They are a form of mentioning a culture that changed with exotic instruments. They could be some portraits of people that are just looked like me!

1-Khuzestan, my homeland, is a main source of oil and gas in Iran. For over 100 years, since William Knox D'Arcy came to our land and find oil with our grandfathers, our lives tied to this industry and directly and indirectly we are deal with black gold. We grew up with oil, like our fathers, and some day we will die and become oil, just like our fathers.

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.
