    Visages
    An Exhibition of the private collection of Fereydoun Ave
    9th of December

     

  • This collection as it is apparent from its title has gathered based on a familiar subject, the traditional concept of drawing portraits, which created a huge portion of the conceptual art images and through passage of time, has faced various changes. In the tradition of portrait drawing just before 19 century, visages to some extend were representatives of the social status, yet by the beginning of this century and differences in discourses they turned to a self representatives and an individual’s symbol springing from each person. These changes of discourses were parallel to creeks which considered self and individual person as a unique subjects and regarded visage as a symbol toward these remarkable features and most importantly as the reflection of the inner feeling of that person.
    This distinction between inside and out, private and personal, surface and depth concepts ,considering the visage of human beings, is like a shade in which it whispers the secrets within and creates  upheavals and movements in this genre which continued till today.
    “Visages’ is an exhibition of Fereydoun Ave’s private collection.
    This collection comprises various works, such as installations of different elements, sculptures, paintings and pictures, that each indicates different generations with different inclinations and styles, yet the mutual concept and feature among all these work is the face and presence of the portrait.
    This exhibition creates a chance and the opportunity for the viewers to observe and find different approaches and paths that each artist saw and had chosen to relate to this matter and concept, through such vast and diverse collection.
    To some extent, through all these years some portion of Fereydoun Ave’s broad activities was dedicated to buying and preservation of Art works.
    By presenting his collection, Lajevardi Foundation tries to emphasis more on his goals and step up toward this path.
    In this exhibition great numbers of his collection will be previewed for the public viewers. This collection is a clear representative of Mr.Fereydoun Ave’s passion toward collecting art work from different generations. Such a passion and affection, that leaded him to introducing young artist parallel.
    All these features are clear representatives of the importance and the influence that Mr.Ave has had upon the Contemporary Art of Iran as an art collector.
    In addition, by presenting his private collection, we have this opportunity to ponder upon the role and influence of the art collector and the importance it has in the art field, once again. Such a significant role that has restated itself in the society of art more than ever.
    Last but not the least, we can consider and interpret this exhibition as a visage and the portrait of Fereydoun Ave himself.
