Be inspired by the captivating Faig Ahmed’s ‘Dissolving Order‘ exhibition that’s on till September 6, 2021, at Aga Khan Museum, Toronto.
Faig Ahmed is an internationally recognized artist from Baku, Azerbaijan, who represented Azerbaijan at the Venice Biennale in 2007. He is well known for his conceptual works that utilize traditional decorative craft and the visual language of carpets into contemporary sculptural works of art.
‘Dissolving order’ is a striking new display dedicated to the work of Faig Ahmed. The work invites us to contemplate upon the possibilities that come out of breaking the tradition and putting the pieces back together bringing innovation into the world.
Gautama appears to fray, swirl, and ooze right in front of the viewer — a helpful reminder that long-lasting traditions or established systems can shapeshift at any time. Everything seems in flux, and at the same time, we see new horizons and fresh expressive possibilities materialize right before our eyes.
Although the show was considered before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. It evokes ideas and emotions that are all too relevant in our current moment of global upheaval.
