“VISUAL SABOTAGE”

with Senih Çavuşoğlu

Classical painting figures (portraits) wander the streets/places of Tehran city.  

Blending classical or world paintings and figures with contemporary city of Tehran. You are asked to integrate historical artworks of antique and mythological figures, characters, creatures etc. into the streets, sights, places at Tehran. From your daily life, experience the city with today’s, yesterday’s eye to present a re-presentation of Tehran as seen through the eyes of classical paintings, forming a personal portrait of the city.

Aim is to create an obvious juxtaposition between the urban context and their painterly forms, giving the observer fantastical scenarios that evoke sense of wonder and awe.
