until 26.04. | #1144ARTatBerlin | Galerie Berlin-Baku presents from 28th March 2017 a calligraphy exhibition with works by four artists from Iran.
With works by: Farnoosh Hadavi, Leila Vaziri, Mehrnaz Ghorbanpour and Robabeh Hosseinpur.
Calligraphy with Arabic characters “fascinates by the elegance of its curved lines and the exciting interplay of horizontal and vertical lines. Thus, an early Koran leaf or a simple ceramic with script decoration may be felt as beautiful, as aesthetically satisfying or even intuitive as a work of art …. “(Deniz Erduman) Calligraphy is the queen of Islamic art. It has been developed from the Arab script in close coherence with Islam, due to the prohibition of images in Islam. Calligraphy is ubiquitous. “It dominates not only religious, secular and scientific texts, magnificently designed manuscripts and calligraphy pages, but is also unmistakable in the entire Islamic architecture.” (Deniz Erduman) Not only many artisan objects are marked with letters, but calligraphy is also found on objects of daily life, which illustrates the outstanding position. In many Islamic countries there has been a sharp drop in the tradition of calligraphy, but there is at least a country where the opposite was the case. In Iran, calligraphy has undergone a significant renaissance over the past two decades, many thousands of students are cultivating this art and some carry it to other parts of the world.
During the exhibition Galerie Berlin-Baku offers four accompanying calligraphy workshops. You will find more information on the website of the gallery.
