What do the things that cover us, reveal? And what do the things that are hidden, signify? Negar Naderipour’s works are structured on paradoxes.
The rough, handmade, bronze sculptures — and the readymade fabric men’s socks; to be revealed and to be disguised. Her title “Basso Ostinato” links a musical aspect to feminine individuality and sociality. In the installation of her works, Negar Naderipour puts the thought of figuration in opposition to losing the body. Her works pose a sarcastic question towards the dual conceptualizations of the mind, the body, the society, and the individual.
