Environmental Awareness - Chapter 5: A Taste of Austere Luminance

Opening October 1st, 11.30 a.m

Visits: Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm (admission according to capacity). Free admission.  The work of Iranian artist Reza Aramesh is closely related to issues of transit and migration. Throughout his work, the body is the space in which the conditions of migration are expressed, and the memory of the experiences and traumas are recorded. In this regard, it is worth noting that the realities imprinted in this work, Action 213, are not only matters of social and political conflict, but also and very especially, those of landscapes. 

By choosing a decorative device such as a folding screen made with a translucent material - white gauze -, Aramesh presents a reality that somehow clashes with the finesse of the piece. 

Each of the panels features the silhouette of a huddled, subdued body, on which natural and social landscapes are printed in subtle shades of grey in the manner of a collage. These bodies bear witness to transits and hardships. However, the artistic operation provides them with an "austere luminance", the kind that restores human dignity to each of the individuals involved.
