Bita Vakili - solo exhibition (29 November - 29 January)

Statement

The following series, depicts a dichotomy, that peacefully and eternally, at the initial phase interprets the present perturbation of our world, and then, pictures the path and the way out of that. The visual representation of post-modern metal structures and urban planning, along with the eastern aspects that are mostly presented in the technique of twisted clouds, provides an interpretation of the present world that can be seen in the form of exploration for getting the East and the West closer to one another. The concept of the East and the West, on one hand, appears geographically, and on the other hand, shows anthropological matters. The East and inward, are similar to the growing embryos in the womb of a set of metropolises considered as the West and outward; they develop, grow and appear in occasionally defined and occasionally undefined borders. The growth of regionalism, the difference between civilizations and their daily increasing collisions with each other, the identity crisis in the process of social, economic, and cultural modernization, make confrontation between civilizations unavoidable. In fact, in this series, with a special optimism, which can be found in the rich Iranian and eastern culture, the clash of civilisations has been challenged by drawing signs such as twisting and dancing paths, and embryonic forms that represent the essence of life, creation and birth.
