صورتها درونند

" درباره صورت های علی سبوکی"

روزها از پی هم می گذرند و ما از پی هم. شب، روز می شود و روز هفته. هفته ماه و ماه سال وسال قرن. انسان می آید و می ماند و می میرد و تکرار می شود همین آمدن و رفتن ها. انسان را از مرگ گریزی نیست. به آگهی های ترحیم دقت کنید پرتره ی آخر با نام و نشانی و دلیل مرگ. پرتره  های آگهی ترحیم مواجهه صریح ما با تصویر آدم هایی ست که می توانیم  فرق بگذاریم میان بیرون و درون یک انسان. به وضوح در ذهن همه ما شکل می گیرد که فلانی دیگر پشت این تصویر نیست و یا روشن تر اینکه تصویر روح ندارد. این یعنی تصویر آدم  ها نیازمند یک روح است. یک چیز که ما را شیرفهم  کند فلانی زنده است. زندگی سراسر ماشینی این سال های ما از ما آدم هایی ساخته است که به هم کمتر نگاه می کنیم  و کمتر حال هم را می پرسیم. دلمان میخواهد سرمان توی کار خودمان باشد و از زل زدل هایی که ما را به یاد خودمان می آورد فرار می¬کنیم .پرتره های زنده این مجموعه مجال با هم نشستن اند. فرصت یک گپ زدن و یادآوردی و توی چشم هم نگاه کردن و درد دلی شاید. در صورت های این مجموعه آدم ها پشت صورتهایشان زندگی می کنند. زنی عاشق است، کسی منتظر است، دیگری شوریده است، دلی شورمی زند و زنی سر  به درون دارد با گلی در دست و امیدی رفته... آدم ها در این مجموعه چیزی پنهان دارند. این را می-شود پشت تک تک صورتهایشان خواند. می شود چشم هایشان را رمز گشایی کرد و دست هایشان را خواند. همه ی چشم ها معصومند و در گستره ای وسیع از رمز آمیزی بی پایان شما را افسون می کنند.حتی اگر آن چشم ها بسته باشند چشم ها، لب های فروبسته بی قراری هستند که می¬شود ساده به آن ها زل زد و پرسید : بگو عزیز دلم داستان از چه قرار است ؟!زیر پوست این صورت ها یک چیز بی قراری تکان می خورد. همه این آدم ها انگار آبستن یک درونند و همین کودک درون دارد از شیره جانشان می مکد.این جا همه مادرند .همه نگران کودکی اند که در درونشان تکان نمی خورد و همین از آن ها چهره های نا آرامی ساخته است که گویی سال هاست لبخند از لبانشان رخت بر بسته است .تصویرها گرمند.حتی وقتی آبی هست و بنفش هست .رنگها هویتشان را از جای دیگر می گیرند. رنگ ها متصل به درون آدم هایند. تاثیر زرد و قرمز و نارنجی درون است که آبی و بنفش و سبز راگرم می کند. تاریک و روشنای تصویر آدم های این مجموعه حکایت زیستن ماست. حکایت پیدا و پنهانمان، زشت و زیبایمان ،بیرون و درونمان، و حکایت حال عجیت این روزهای ما.

Beyond the Faces

About Portraits By Ali Sabouki

Days are followed by nights, nights turn into days, days into weeks, weeks into months, months into years and years into centuries. People come and go, and this is repeated again and again. People are destined to die. Death is unavoidable. Take a look at obituary notices ! The last portraits with names, addresses and causes of death. Obituary notices are our direct encounter with people whose outer world differentiate from inner world. We can clearly see the person in the photo is no longer there, or to put it simply, the photo is soulless. It shows us that humans need spirit to be considered alive. Today’s modern life has made us into people who hardly look at each other or greet each other. We are only concerned with our own lives, and try to avoid the watchful gaze of those who remind us of ourselves. The current collection of portraits creates an opportunity to sit and have a heart-to-heart chat to look into each other’s eyes. The people in this photos are hidden behind their faces. A woman in love, a man longing desperately for his beloved, a woman with a flower in hand overcome with despair. They each have their own stories which could be understood from their faces. Their eyes are innocent, but mysteriously seductive, even they are closed. You can stare into those eyes and ask, “what is your story, my dear?”

Beyond these faces are the inner children who don’t seem to be alive anymore. And that’s what has stolen smile from their faces and made them so anxious. This collection is the story of our lives, our inner and outer world, beautiful and ugly, our strange feelings and emotions in the world today.

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.
