Faig Ahmed – Azerbaijan carpet art
Faig Ahmed‘s surreal sculptures incorporate ancient carpet-weaving techniques from his native country of Azerbaijan into forms that anyone would identify has hyper-contemporary. His intricately patterned weavings are mounted on architectural structures, fabricated in wood or plastic. Sometimes the stark contrast between white form and traditional tapestry is startling enough on its own; other times, Ahmed alters the patterns to suggest digital manipulation, pixelation, and distortion. He has exhibited at prestigious fairs and museums, including the Venice Biennale and the National Center of Contemporary Art in Moscow.
