In Praise of Deterioration

Old handmade papers with delicate persian calligraphy and harmonic texture. leaves which in the course of the river have nothing left, except a few capillaries. And the unique forgotten  tectic of Iranian painting, they all symbolize a kind of beauty that I call "In Praise Of Deterioration". Time plays the most important role in building this beauty, as it plays the most important role in destruction. By placing a collection of these papers, drawings and leaves in a touchable installation, I intend to share this aesthetic experience with viewers. Farmanfarma Gallery-Tehran-Iran-2018
