Mamali and his Doves in Art?!

2009-01-16 to 2009-01-29
AARAN Gallery in Tehran

"Mamali and his Doves in Art?!" is artists' newest project, exploring the theme of narcissism and the artist. It consists of an installation of large-scale photos of the artist in a series of "artistic" poses with "his" doves. The space contains a variety of specially-made objects, inspired by Kitsch gadgets found in novelty stores, all containing an effigy of Mamali and his dove(s). In the center is a large-scale reproduction of a gadget found in a gift-store in Istanbul, Turkey, in which the reflection of a dove will create the illusion of a statue of the bird rising above a steel ring
