This project "archegraph study" started at 2015, and I carried out it in some cities.
In this practice, by basing on researching urban landscapes, I abstract images through drawing process. Then I transform those images into 3D objects, painting, printing material, and movie images.
 At first, I start to make images by imitating of reality, but those images lost substance and connection with original models on the way of drawing and transforming to various medias. Finally they present one hidden layer of image about urban landscapes, or create one another reality as simulacra of this world.

 In Seoul, I stayed for three months there and practiced my drawing by basing on reseaching urban landscapes in Seoul. Finally, I made 224 pieces drawings, and they composed one installation work in exhibition space.

installation at Kleiner salon, Berlin
curated by Nazli Kikerci


This exhibition was made through the discussion about language with curator. Finally, I presented thinking process about language by using the artistic method as one installation work.
 Fundamentally, language is made by the elements of the "image" and "meaning". I tried to make one odd situation where the meaning was slipped down from their images, I mean this situation is images exist independently as one visual language without belonging the meaning of real world.

Berlin is the cosmopolitan city where a lot of immigrants, tourists and artists come from all over the world. when I stayed at the studio located in the east area of Berlin, a lot of artists and their family, also friends visited there one after another. I asked them to sing the "nursery song"(children's song) of their mother countries in front of video camera. Finally,  I collected 8 footages of singing. Actually, each participant came from various countries where have different cultural background per each. ( as like Spain, Switzerland, Hungary, Yemen, Brazil, USA, Portugal, chili ) 

 In the installation space, I set two screens by face to face and showing their footages by some special timeline as like one music score. At first, a singer sings the nursery song for one minute,  then stop to sing and keep silence in front of a camera for one minute, after then he/ she sings the same song again. In the installation space when the one singer starts to sing on the screen, a singer on another screen stop to sing and keep silence as like to hear the song that one another singer sings their home country's nursery song.

By collecting some footages of hitting objects in the city of Rotterdam, I made one fictional drum session in one video.
In this video, one simple gesture as hitting city's objects remove their original meanings and functions in every day life.

Then we choose some realizable ideas of movies from their ideas, and carried out to take those images in their studio and city of Tehran actually.
