Shirin Art Gallery Nov 2023 Parastoo Mohaqeq Andar Vayu 02

نمایشگاه انفرادی نقاشی و ویدیو آرت " پرستو محقق" با عنوان " اندروای " آبان 1402 گالری شیرین


Born in 1983 in Tehran, Mohaqeq obtained her master's degree in Literature from Tehran University. With participation in numerous group exhibitions, this marks her second exhibition at Shirin Gallery.

Zarvan Rohbakhbakhshan says the following about this collection:

Vāyu is the god of wind and it possesses double faces, both good and bad. As it blows in

both of the two worlds, through the light and darkness. It is really benevolent but able to

ruin everything at the same time. Thus it is believed that its position is in the middle of the

earth and the sky, between the light and the darkness.

Vāyu is called Andar Vāyu in Pahlavi language. Along with the god of water, fire and the

earth, it is one of the four elements which were known as the universe themes for the

ancients. But maybe its duality stands against peace and quiet and in fact it is the cause

of unrest. Its beneficent side is the enemy of demons and its dark side is their companion.

Andar Vāyu of Parastoo Mohaghegh is not an image of this god remained in between good

and evil but a depiction of our world with sorrow.

It starts from the light and shadow but no way to an ending. Sometimes it is so light and

sometimes it is so dark that nothing is visible in both modes.

This collection is meaningful in the middle of this duality, light and darkness together

and the bodies which remained as spectres. Everyone of us has experienced the endless

suspense of Andar Vāyu.

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.
