Nairy Baghramian

The German sculptress Nairy Baghramian (1971, Isfahan, Iran) wants to make us aware of strategies that determine the production, presentation and perception of art and of the role of the viewer in the creation of value in art. To do this she dismantles existing forms and concepts from the field of sculpture and recombines them with principles drawn from design or fashion. She balances between functionality and presentation, decoration and utility, memory and physicality. She experiments with materials, hanging heights, sightlines and other presentation parameters. In this way, spatial hierarchies are made visible and the artist challenges the relationships between viewer and artwork.
