ALI AKBAR SADEGHI

Lost In Fame

The most recognizable element of these series is the presence of world famous sculptures by artists such as Picasso, Degas, Rodin, Michael Angelo, Henry Moor and the painting of Munch “The Scream” in which Ali Akbar’s signature characters starts to manipulate their existent. One censor nudity and one crushes surrounding.

 

Other vivid message is the invasion of western culture to Iranian intellects which represented as cluster of Polish chairs. “Polish chairs” have been for decades in old cafés in Tehran intellectual communities and somehow they became familiar element of western product. This cultural juxtaposition illustrates a naïve composition that integrated in to 20 century’s Iran mannerism. The consequences are nothing but a deep silence embedded loudly in these paintings. One censored and the others slept.
