Torang Daneshmand - solo exhibition (22 February - 27 February)
such definition, we are inclined to the art that persists on its own artistic merits in addition to its decorative nature. This becomes ever more clear when the artist emphasizes the singularity of the works. The horse is an element that turns into a motif with a meaningful and interpretable role through distinct reiterations in the works of Torang Daneshmand. In her silver pieces, the horse is at times its mythical self in Iranian art and at other times, it is the contemporary interpretation of its ancient historical figure. Every so often, it departs from being a mere subject; different parts of its body turn into detached and yet meaningful pieces and in an even more contemporary passage, its familiar and pleasant lines and shapes reach a vast abstraction that sets loose the desire of the artist. Such deliverance bears meaning and is not a mere showcase of special forms. In fact, the theme, the context and the motif of the horse in this collection is in a constant change and metamorphosis; it moves from one point to another dynamically. At times, it sits graciously with its neck and mane against the wind. At other times, it stands with its neck high, reaching out for the hidden moon. Sometimes, it walks and occasionally, it trots and gallops. And then, there are other times that it is only the demeanour of its body that remains for us in the shape of flowing lines. All in all, what is more spectacular in these works is the respect, distant or intimate, for the horse that can accompany us in our contemporary lives. Rasool Rakhsha Winter 2019
