April 10 from 12
OGR Turin Corso Castelfidardo, 22 Turin
From Dubai to Venice and, in the center, Turin. On his trip to the 59th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, ALLUVIUM by Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian is previewed at OGR Torino .
The preview will take place on Sunday 10 April 2022, at 12 noon, between art, performance and music.
Starting from the exhibition in OGR of one of the sculptures of the ALLUVIUM series , accompanied by the performance of the dancer Francesca Ugolini , OGR and the artists invite you to get in touch with their work: an invitation to get closer to the artistic universe of the Iranian collective of based in Dubai, to observe paintings and collages created through the reworking of images taken from the news, to be amazed by the multiple levels and details of their works in a counter-narrative of our times .
Afterwards it will be possible to continue the experience with live DJ sets in Snodo, the food & drink area of OGR Torino.
This alternative recording of contemporaneity is revealed on the terracotta plates of ALLUVIUM 's works, compositions and constellations with a delicate balance. The plates, produced by artisans according to the Middle Eastern tradition, are supported by iron sculptures, made by the artists in collaboration with the Dubai blacksmith Mohammed Rahis Mollah.
The title ALLUVIUM is therefore both a reference to clay, to the silt deposited by running water, to the materiality of terracotta paintings, and metaphorically to the remains of a more abstract flow: that of news, cultural images and history, scanned by the artists , collected and processed to gain new life in an act of resistance.
