Farid Rasulov’s Solo Exhibition at Rabouan Moussion Gallery, Paris
06 Sep > 11 Oct 14
Dogs in the Living Room
6 September > 11 October 2014
Opening: Saturday, 6 September 2014
Rabouan Moussion Gallery is glad to present Farid Rasulov’s first solo show in France. After the success of his "Carpet Interior" installation at the 55th Venice Biennale, the azeri artist will present an initiatory journey, offering a discovery of the perception of a man faced with an aesthetic paradox: a total installation, carpeted with oriental motifs. Rasulov transforms typical Western spaces with irrational and provocative designs, like a dialogue between East and West.
These traditional patterns - motivus means «what moves» in Latin - are the signs of a changing country: a region of Soviet Union dissolved, torn between tradition and modernity, East and West. This work backs on a conceptual nakedness, yet neither rational nor useful. The total composition ornament multiplies the signs of an ancient tradition to transform the meaning and destination. The space becomes an extreme variation of the present staked by an ancestral material composition, which is at the same time useful and symbolic. The meaning escapes by the multiplicity and operates a cultural transfer: the extent of weaving causes alienation of the meaning. The sensory experience plunges the viewer into a particular universe, which still remains to be discovered.
