A selection of works from Pejman collection
Curator: Zohreh Deldadeh
Project Manager: Shakiba Abdollahian
While the artworks in a collection are representatives of the taste and the views of their collector, they also happen to be a reflection of what is happening in the art scene of a given society. Despite the difference in the generations of the artists and the variety of their artistic media, what distinguishes the approach and the perspective of each collection is the intellectual background of its collector that is expected to be traced in most of the works they have acquired.
Although each work of art has an independent identity and makes sense within the series formed by its artist, once it is acquired and excluded from the original series, it enters into a larger world. Situated in another series and sitting among the works of other artists, it becomes a part of a wider totality.
What we encounter in this exhibition is a selection from Hamidreza Pejman’s private collection acquired during the past ten years. Although the exhibition includes a wide range of works from various artists, the collector’s point of view can be easily spotted by a brief look.
