Shirin Art Gallery Feb 2014 Amirnasr Kamgooyan To 13 Hertz 02

تا 13 هــرتــز

درست به خاطر ندارم که بیدار بودم یا خواب: در خواب یا خاطره؟ شاید هردو. شاید کشف هیجان انگیز نامنتظرها برای جوینده اش به طور غیر قابل انکاری خجسته باشد و هیچ کاشفی به امید کشف اتفاقی روانه ی سفر اکتشافی نمی شود. و چه راه های بی ثمری که زیر پا خواهد گذاشت. جست وجوهایی که گاه بی انجام می مانند و اغلب بی فایده می نمایند. اما، «کند و کاو» برای یافتن معنا کشمکش دائمی انسان است برای نزدیک شدن به چیزی که چه بسا اگر رازآلود نبود دیگر ارزش پیدا شدن نداشت. به زبان تصاویری ناآشنا، از تجربه ی روزمره جدا می شویم و به ابهامی آشنا کشیده می شویم. تصاویری که چون سنگواره هایی به شکلی ظاهراً تصادفی در برابرمان قرار می گیرند و مانند لکه-های عجیب جوهر با تقارن محوری عموماً مبهم ولی مستحکم هستند و حاوی اطلاعات از موجوداتی مشخص ولی مرموز که درست در آستانه قرار گرفته اند. بدون تخیل خطری تهدیدمان می کند که بدون خطر کردن به تخیل حتی خطرناک تر خواهد شد.

 امیر نصر کم گویان

To 13 Hertz
I am not sure whether I was asleep or awake—perhaps I am in a dream state somewhere in between. The anticipation of discovering the unexpected, potentially auspicious, is also tinged with the anxiety of uncertainty. Those who purposely evade well-worn path are sure to find themselves on many fruitless roads, abandoned in vain. Would the unknowable still be worth these winding investigations if this process were not so unexpected and strange? Drifting between the comforts of our quotidian practices and the surreal landscape of the images before us, we encounter a familiar ambiguity. Like Rorschark blots the images unearth from our subconscious a nostalgic identification with that we cannot fathom, and a pleasure that doubles in the deferral of our attempts to gain the intimacy of understanding. Without the imagination that enables us to walk the edge of this wandering line between the perceptible and the extraordinary, we would be in a danger much more grave than that posed by the potential dead-ends of these manifold paths.

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.
