Shirin Art Gallery Jul 2014 Iman Ebrahimpour Beautiful Sorrow 01

هنگامی که دردها،رنج ها،ترس ها و سختی ها به سویت هجوم می آورند و بی رحمانه عذابت می دهند ، به درونت رسوخ می کنند . درونت که ازنرمی و لطافت و احساس غوطه ور است. همه ی این ها با هم آمیخته شده و به مفهومی جدید بدل می شوند. مفهومی که نمی دانی از کدام است! زشت است یا زیبا،تلخ است یا شیرین،غمگین است یا شاد؟ به گمانم اندوهیست زیبا. در جریان زندگی اتفاقاتی در لحظه رخ می دهد که شاید نتوان توضیح دقیقی در موردشان داد،کنش هایی که در روابط انسان های پیرامونم اتفاق می افتد،شدیداً مبهم،نامتعارف،عمیق،و تاثیر گذارند اما همیشه مرا به مفاهیمی ارجاع می دهند که در واقع در بطن آن مفاهیم می توانم تعریفشان کنم . شاید این برای اکثریت تفاوتی نکند، اما برای من جذابند و مرا به فکر وا می دارند و هر بار که می بینمشان به وسعت دنیایی که در درونم ساخته ام می افزایند و من ایمان دارم کسانی در نقاط مختلف جهان هستند که همانند من این اتفاقات برایشان تاثیر گذار است و این وجوه اشتراک را می توان حس همدردی نامید. حس همدردی یکی دیگر از زیبایی هایی است که من با کشیدن نقاشی هایم می سازمش. مسأله ی سازش و ساختن است . سازش با تلخی ها و ساختن زیبایی از تلخی ها . همانند دختر زیبایی که معصومانه مرده و معشوقه اش در کنار او مظلومانه در حال نواختن ساز است و این اتفاق در عین حال که بسیار غم انگیز است،اما زیبایی معصومانه ای را با خود دارد. همانند مردی که دربرکه ای در حال غرق شدن است و زنی که بی تفاوت و با نگاهی عاری از احساس غرق شدنش را تماشا می کند . از طرفی مرد مغروق حتی در آخرین لحظه های زندگیش فقط به چشمان معشوقه اش (همان زن) نگاه می کند و گویی هیچ پشیمان نیست که زندگیش را تا حد مرگ وقف معشو قه اش کرده. این اتفاق نیز در عین بی رحمی زیباست. همانند چند مرد سرخورده و همدرد که برای فرار از اجتماع, به نقطه ای بکر از طبیعت روی آورده اند و خیلی مظلومانه به تماشای رقص یک عروسک باله نشسته اند.

Pain, distress, fear and difficulties that torment the soul conquer you. The soul is immerse in elegance and sensation, ugliness and beauty, bitter and sweet, sorrowful and joyful - I think it is a beautiful sorrow. Life events occur at unexplainable moments, and the actions which are happening in my surroundings are ambiguous, unusual, and deep - reminders to my soul. Maybe it is not important for most of people but it makes me think and every time I see them, they channel the world that I have built up inside me. I believe there are many people around the world who agree, and are sympathetic with me. Feeling of sympathy is another beauty that I try to show in my works. The issue is about peace and patience. Patience against difficulties and making beauty of those difficulties. Such as an innocent woman dying while her lover plays music. It's a tragic story of innocence and beauty. Or a man drowning in a lake while a woman watches him sink.  Their eyes meet, he does not regret their life together, but she does not aid him, beautiful and cruel.

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.
