Reception for "Voyage en Fleurs" A Solo Show of Sculptures by Fidan Bagirova

On November 16th, The Untitled Space will host a reception celebrating exhibit “Voyage en Fleurs” A Solo Show of Sculptures by artist Fidan Bagirova. The artist reception will be hosted by curator Stacy Engman and gallery director Indira Cesarine.

 

Artist Statement:
“In these turbulent times of divisiveness and polarization, I am interested in engaging with issues of religious reconciliation, peace and harmony by invoking the traditional symbolism of flowers as a means of communication on both a human and cultural level. The sculptures of “Voyage En Fleurs” deliberately reference the language of abstract expressionism. They are inspired by societal issues of immigration and exploring ideas around the dreams of new life. For many years people have emigrated to the United States of America not only hoping to fulfill their dreams but also to unlock the imagination promised by the ‘new world’ as it was once known. These sculptures are produced by crafting floral forms from recycled rough aluminum sheets, which are then painted in saturated color palettes. Although they are intended to appeal directly to the eye, it is only on closer inspection that their surfaces are revealed as having been beaten and smashed. The constructions themselves are comprised of thin metal, and like the flowers to which they refer, are more fragile that they first appear. In many ways this fragility also relates directly to human subjectivity and the blossoming of individual human lives.
”

Fidan Bagirova’s art series have attracted interest and presales from a variety of collectors in anticipation of the show, including the two time Best Film Oscar winner Paul Haggis, the world’s leading novelist Sir Salman Rushdie, Vogue Uomo and Italia contributing editor Rushka Bergman, actor and philanthropist Adrian Grenier, and former critically acclaimed Fugees band singer and now producer Pras Michel.

The exhibition is on view to the public from November 7th through November 20th at The Untitled Space gallery.
