Artist:Faig Ahmed(Azerbaijan)
Title:Door to Yourself




The artist feels gates have a certain sanctity and draws inspiration from metaphorical expressions of them in Japanese humanitarian and Zen practices. Positioned between sunrise and sunset, the work represents two aspects of life. Going through the gate, we hear the sound of the wind while waves break against the shore. The act of passing through a gate is a kind of ceremony. Viewers realize they themselves are also gates.




Faig Ahmed(Azerbaijan)

出身於阿塞拜疆巴庫。曾經代表阿塞拜疆參加2017年威尼斯雙年展。 以將傳統裝飾性工藝品和地毯的視覺語言創新融合當代藝術雕刻的概念作品而聞名。透過解構傳統與刻板印象,將古老工藝品重新描繪,賦予新的視覺界線。他的作品以歷史悠久的傳統工藝結合超現代數位科技技術使之像素化或展現立體圖案、將傳統墊子花紋翻新改以塗鴉方式等大膽創新形象的意外組合藝術手法,吸引了大眾的注意力。另外,他還使用電腦素描作品,選擇以複雜的傳統古老編織技術,將設計打印在地毯上。

到目前為止,他在全美舉辦個展和團展,包括波士頓美術館、貝爾維尤藝術博物館(華府)、克利夫蘭當代美術館、密爾沃基藝術設計學院、博卡拉頓藝術美術館、紐波特美術館、檀香山美術館、特雷恩大學附屬紐卡姆美術館、聖路易斯·奧比斯波美術館等。 另外,羅馬現代美術館(MACRO)、應用藝術科學博物館(雪梨)、塔斯馬尼亞博物館(塔斯馬尼亞)、紡織博物館(瑞典)、伊斯坦布爾現代美術館(莫斯科)、阿加·卡恩美術館(多倫多)、 道鐘斯美術館(紐西蘭)等地也收藏著他的作品。

Faig Ahmed is an internationally recognized artist from Baku, Azerbaijan, who represented Azerbaijan at the Venice Biennale in 2007.
 He is well known for his conceptual works that utilize traditional decorative craft and the visual language of carpets in contemporary sculptural works of art. His works reimagine ancient crafts and create new visual boundaries by deconstructing traditions and stereotypes.
Ahmed's artworks engage the viewers through their unexpected marriage of traditional crafts, steeped in history, with hyper-contemporary, digitally distorted images often in the form of pixilation, three-dimensional shapes, and melting paint that alters the pattern on the rugs. He employs computers to sketch his works and chooses intricate traditional methods of carpet-weaving techniques to print his designs on carpets.
 Ahmed has exhibited his works worldwide including group and solo exhibitions in New York, Paris, London, Berlin, Istanbul, Moscow, Toronto, Mumbai, Rome, Israel, Sydney, and Dubai. In 2013, he was nominated for the Jameel Prize 3 at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Ahmed's works have been recently exhibited in several museum solos and group shows all over the United States, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Bellevue Arts Museum, Washington; the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland; Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design; Boca Raton Museum of Art; Newport Art Museum; Honolulu Museum of Art; Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane; San Luis Obispo Museum of Art; as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome (MACRO), the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, Sydney, Museum of Old and New Art, Tasmania and the Textile Museum of Sweden, Borås, Istanbul Modern, Istanbul, New Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Aga Khan Museum, Toronto, The Dowse Art Museum, Lower Hutt.
