【Nairy Baghramian : Maintainers】
日期：2022-07-16 ~ 2022-10-16
For her works exhibited at the Winsing Art Place, Nairy Baghramian, an artist of Iranian descent, once said, “Sculpture, art in general, is not there to make things more suitable than society expects of us. Art shouldn’t bear the burden of anticipating success.” In the contemporary art world, her sculptures are not only about the work itself, but the conditions of their surroundings that constitute an essential factor in their appearance, and the varied shapes of the pieces interact with each other to produce a relationship that is both contradictory and balanced.
Her creations span photography, painting and installation, with sculpture being the primary form of representation. Working on a variety of mediums, her pieces often feature metallic structures that are supporting each other and building on each other, as well as reflections of body postures and internal structures. "Instability” is a recurring theme in her work, with many seemingly thin and slender bracing structures that are close to collapsing, overhanging, tilting and yet dominating the objects in the space. The unstable gestures, both in appearance and in nature, are represented in the pieces on display in this exhibition.
Baghramian was born in Isfahan, Iran, in 1971. She moved with her family to Berlin, due to political and social circumstances in 1984. Her pieces have been on show at major art institutions such as the Nasher Sculpture Centre, Galleria d＆#039;Arte Moderna, MUDAM, Luxembourg, Walker Art Center, Art Institute of Chicago, Serpentine Galleries, and have been exhibited at the Venice Biennale, Biennale de Lyon, Documenta Kassel, Berlin Biennale, Skulptur Projekte Münster, and are also in the collections housed by several internationally renowned institutions. In 2022, the artist won the Nasher Prize and was shortlisted for the Hugo Boss Prize and honored with the Zurich Art Prize.
