Art Curation for Spaces

London

C1760 interweaves contemporary and modern art positions with ancient objects on over 1.500 square meters of magnificent rooms in a grand, historical Townhouse, showing how an in-depth private collection across periods can be laid out beautifully. This curatorial art concept has been tailored to this exclusive space in collaboration with Interior Designer Irakli Zaria. Every artwork is hand-selected and approved in order to enhance this extraordinary design vision in the most perfect way possible.

About the Artist

Reza Aramesh was born in Iran and is based in London and New York. Working in sculpture, drawing, embroidery, ceramics, video and performance in a succession of ‘actions’, Reza Aramesh draws inspiration from media coverage of international conflicts dating from the mid- 20th century until present day. This coverage is then transformed into sculptural volumes in collaboration with non-professional models, who help him reenact his chosen source materials. No direct signs of war remain in the physical end results and the characters seem driven out of their initial contexts. Opposition between beauty and brutality allows the artist to unveil the absurdity and the futility of these actions. Aramesh de-contextualises these scenes of violence from their origins, exploring the narratives of representation and iconography of the subjected male body in the context of race, class, and sexuality in order to create a critical conversation with the western art historical canon.

Aramesh holds a Masters degree in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths University, London. His work has been exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions such as the 14 Bienal de la Habana, Asia Society Museum, New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art Breuer, New York, SCAD Museum, Atlanta, Georgia, Akademie der Kunste Berlin, the 56th Venice Biennale, Art Basel Parcours, Frieze Sculpture Park, London, Sculpture in the City, London, Armory Show Off-Site at Collect Pond Park, New York and at Maxxi Museum, Rome among others. Aramesh has orchestrated a number of performances and situations in such spaces as The Barbican Centre, Tate Britain and ICA, London. His works have entered public and private collections worldwide including Argentina, Germany, Lithuania, Poland, USA, Belg ium, Israel, France, Iran, Lebanon, Italy and the U.K.
