The exhibition “And horse, do you remember?” with the works of Torang Daneshmand in the field of designing and manufacturing wearable sculptures and jewellery hosted by the CAMA Gallery.
Fashion and Apparel Service of Online Art: Jewelry and wearable sculptures of Torang Daneshmand will be showcased from Friday, February 22, for six days in the CAMA Gallery, located in Tehran, Pasdaran Ave, Golestan 10 Street, No. 44, second floor Farin Building.
“And horse, do you remember?” is the title of the exhibition and Rasoul Rakhsha, an activist in the field of literature and journalism, wrote about this event as below:
“When we talk about the wearable sculptures, we actually acknowledge that these ornamental objects do not limit themselves as jewels and they want to emphasise the quality of being statues, so with this definition, we find ourselves toward art that is in addition to being applied and decorative, wants to insist on its artistic image. This point is much more apparent by the fact in manufacturing the sculptures the artist emphasises on the uniqueness of them.
The horse in the works of Torang Daneshmand, is an element that becomes a meaningful and interpretable role in addition to being motifs by its distinct repetitiveness. The horse in her silver works is sometimes the same as the mythical horse in Iranian art, sometimes it becomes an old-fashioned horse, sometimes it separates from its subject, and its limbs becomes the individual meaningful pieces, and in its more contemporaneous crossing, the familiar and pleasant lines and curvature of the horse reach to the vast abstraction that releases the inner desire of the artist — the release which is meaningful and is not just a showcase to represent certain forms. In fact, the theme, motifs and contents of the horse in this collection are continually changing and transforming and moving dynamically from place to place elsewhere.
Sometimes it is sitting quietly, perked its neck and mane opposing. Sometimes standing and looking for a hidden moon in the sky above. Sometimes stepping, sometimes galloping and sometimes only the behaviour of its body which remains in the form of fluid lines for us, but it seems that what is visible in these works is the far and near meaning and respect of the horse which can be with us in today’s life."
