گالری شیرین مفتخر است آثاری از این هنرمند، با عنوان هایپرایگو را به نمایش بگذارد.
هایپر ایگو اولین نمایشگاه انفرادی مریم رحیمی می باشد.
وی، خود در رابطه با این نمایشگاه می گوید:
ایگو یا من از عناصر تشکیل دهنده شخصیت فرد محسوب می شود و در واقع واسطه ای ست میان درون و برون انسان.
افکار و اعمالی که از انسان بروز می کند با تصمیم ایگو ظهور پیدا کرده و بدین گونه میان دنیای خارج و درون فرد تعادل برقرار می نماید.
انسان در هر دوره از زندگی خویش دغدغه های متفاوتی دارد که جسم و روحش را فرا می گیرد، در این دوره هاست که نقش ایگو در شکل گیری شخصیت فرد به خوبی نمایان می شود.
در این مجموعه ایگو سرزمین وسیعی فرض شده که توسط الهه ی مادر (ایگونیا) و دخترانش اداره می شود. هر یک از دختران ایگونیا نماد یکی از جنبه های روانشناختی زن است که در یکی از دوره های زندگی وی ظهور می کنند.
ایگو در هر دوره رنگ، شکل وجنس خاص خودش را دارد اما من نهایی از کنار هم قرار گرفتن همین جنس، رنگ و فرم هاست که شکل می گیرد
Maryam Rahimi was born in Tehran, She has received her B.A Sculpture from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Tehran.
She won second prize in the Biennial of Urban Sculptures and over the years thereafter participated in a number of group exhibitions at Bahman Cultural Center, Barg Art Gallery, Shirin Art Gallery, Aun Gallery, Iranian Artists’ Home and several other galleries. She also has a history of participation in several biennial sculptures in her career.
Shirin Art Gallery is pleased to present Hyper Ego, the first solo exhibition of recent works by Artist Maryam Rahimi.
She, herself, says about this exhibition:
Ego is a component of the individuals' personality. In fact, Ego is an intermediary between the human inside and outside.
Thoughts and actions are the manifestations of ego’s decision.
And thus, ego sets an equilibrium between the outside world and individuals inside.
In every period of his life, man has different concerns occupying his body and soul. During these periods, the role of ego in the formation of the individual personality is well manifested.
In this series, ego is considered a large land governed by the mother goddess (Egonia) and her daughters. Each of Egonia’s girls is a psychological aspect of women that manifests in one of their life courses.
Ego has a different color, shape, and material in every course, but the ultimate ego is formed through the gathering of the color, shape, and material.
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.
