BALTIC 39 | Mohammad Namazi
CCW PhD researcher Mohammad Namazi has been selected for this year’s Baltic 39 Exhibition programme. Around Hospitality marks Namazi’s first solo exhibition in the UK and will include artworks made from 2014 to 2016. The exhibition is open to public from 17 – 21 February 2016 at Baltic 39’s South Exhibition Space
The temporal tensions between transience and permanency, or kinesis and stasis, have been a constant area of research for Namazi, exploring the polarity of subjects such as the rights of individuals, consumerism and the political exchange of power and hospitality.
During this five-day exhibition Namazi will be in residence; utilizing a range of media including video, print, sculpture, the internet and sound to produce installations within the gallery and his self initiated artist’s studio. The project aims to explore the boundaries between these two environments, where complete and realized artworks are presented next to works-in-progress. Privileging experimentation and process through dialogue and practice, Namazi will invite others to use the space for their own projects.
BALTIC 39 | FIGURE THREE is the third iteration of the open submission exhibition which offers a platform for artists to test works and ideas, or to develop works in progress within a public context. More information can be found on their website.
