The Open / Saeed Khavarnejad


This exhibition is a collection of defaced pictures of monitor screens and TV noises: complicated pictures produced as the result of regular replication and arrangement of primary images. This collection has been produced since 2014 and took the award of TV Noise in annual Normandy (France, 2015). The exhibition title is derived from The Open: Man & Animal written by Giorgio Agamben (one of well-known authors and philosophers of Italy). He examines future communities of creatures regardless of any identity: A future shared by creatures especially humans through language experience. This collection can be presented between absolute darkness and light. This condition suggests frequent exposure of audience to invisibility and subsequently visual stimulation. This occurs through replication of relatively unprecedented images.
