Tehran Atmosphere

Atmosphere in Tehran
Hamid Reza Ghiasi
The historical memory of each individual is part of a collective memory that has been shaped by various events; Events that have been made from climatic, geographical and social conditions.
The provenance of this collective memory, Tehran, is a city of hums and noises, nested by long corridors extending the city day by day like the roots and branches of a huge tree.
The displayed collection, “Atmosphere in Tehran” is trying to re-bond the winding corridors and historical events through emphasizing on language and meanings of words. It is also attempting to recreate the collective memory in the audiences’ minds.
In the collection, the artist is trying to redefine the collective memory and the meaning of related words through the reproducing characteristic of print making as a medium.
