Think Box

Amir Nasr Kamgooyan - Solo Show

6 Dec - 25 Dec, 2019
Think Box

Presented in various forms and styles, these handmade prints are visual studies of the humanness of people as organic beings, in relation to machines as inorganic creatures. In the meantime, a creature is born with both human and mechanical characteristics: it has natural and artificial organs simultaneously. In the “Think Box” exhibition, Kamgooyan presents a new series of drawings that are made of the details of his earlier works, albeit with a new layering and articulation, constituting a different kind of imagery in which each individual part assumes its meaning in relation to the whole. The beings and creatures of the show are depicted in a number of ways: there are light portable cardboard boxes, assembled like volatile, pliable thoughts, made of multiple layers of creatures, plants, mechanical parts, and various tools, creating the possibility of multiple viewing angles. These volumes bring the gap between the conscious and the subconscious to a minimum, forming a new narrative method in Amir-Nasr’s works. On the other hand, the juxtaposition of contrary, yet homogenous, creatures, generally modeled after scientific drawings of old books appear in different compositions with new outlining of the frames. What is also new in these works is the artist’s use of color.
