Aref Roodbari - solo exhibition (25 January - 30 January)

Statement

I know what address you come from. I know what language you tell colourful stories in. I know that you are the legend of land called “Tajan”. Please strike the warp and woof of this hard and steely land, and rain to the fertility of the May’s rain. Please strike the sea, the leaves and the cow, as much as you like them. You are standing at the highest point of the world; the best place I know. Strike the darkness of this iron, hard and arduously. Build what it has to be, what it should be. In recent years (since 2015 to the present), Aref Roudbari has been known to many art communities, especially the visual art community, with his series of cow sculptures titled “Shakh Bazi”. This striking on the iron and the technique he uses has been turned into his own language. As a writer, who has a deep friendship with life and the lifestyle of this artist, I know why Aref fights iron and why he creates in this way, we both know how much Panbe Chouleh (a small village located in the north of Iran) understands and appreciates its cows.
