حامد نوروزی هنرمند نقاش متولد ۱۳۷۰ در تهران و فارغالتحصیل رشتهی معماری است. او تا به حال چندین نمایشگاه گروهی در داخل و خارج از ایران داشته است و نیش دارو اولین نمایشگاه انفرادی او در گالری شیرین است. او همچین برندهی جایزهی فستیوال Nord art از کشور آلمان در سال ۲۰۱۹ است
علاقهی حامد نوروزی به تاریخ هنر و به ویژه هنرهای تجسمی مهمترین دلیل بکارگیری کاراکترهای تاریخ هنر به عنوان شخصیتهای اصلی آثار اوست. او در این مجموعه سعی در آن دارد تا آثار هنری کلاسیک را با نگرشی نقیضهوار از معنای خود تهی کند تا کمی از تکبر آن کاسته و معنای دیگری در فضایی جدید به آنها ببخشد. نگاه همراه با طنز در این مجموعه در قالبی هرمونوتیک ارائه شده است تا مخاطب نگرش خود را در آن جستجو کند و در مسیر مفهوم تعیین شده به معنایی دستبیابد که گاه از تصورات هنرمند فاصله دارد. اما مسلما این تاویل معناگرایانه در مسیری است که هنرمند را به خلق فرمها واداشته است
علاوه بر این حامد نوروزی در مورد این مجموعه میگوید: معنا در آدمی راهی برای بقا پیدا میکند. در یکی از باورهای شرق آسیا دلیل عجیبی برای تقدس زنبور عسل نظرم را جلب کرد. بومیان به علت تقدس گاوها، جنازههای آنها را جابجا یا دفن نمیکنند. گاهی زنبورها هم اسکلت قفسه سینه گاوها را جای مناسبی برای ساخن کندو میابند و در آنجا کندو به پا میکنند. بومیان بر این باورند که زنبورها روح به پرواز درآمده گاوهای مقدسند
Shirin Gallery is proud to unveil the first solo exhibition of Hamed Norouzi titled Sting Therapy.
Hamed Norouzi, born in Tehran in 1991, has been graduated from Architecture. He has many group exhibitions inside and outside of Iran, and Sting Therapy is his first solo exhibition. In 2019 he also won the Nord Art prize from Germany.
His interest in art history, especially visual art, is the most important reason for using the art history characters as the main characters of his paintings. In this collection, he tries to give new meaning to these characters in a unique atmosphere by using parody. This humorous approach is presented in a hermeneutic way, which leads the audiences to search for their approaches and achieve the new meaning, which is sometimes far from the artist's imagination. But certainly, this semantic interpretation is in the direction that has led the artist to create forms.
Also, he says about this collection: "In one of the East Asian beliefs, a strange reason for the sanctity of bees' caught my attention. The natives do not move or bury their bodies because of their sanctity.
Sometimes bees find the skeleton of a cow's chest an excellent place to build and set up a hive there.
The natives believe that bees are the spirits of sacred cows.
It is as if a semantic collapse recreates another meaning."
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.
