Low Art    

Collaborative Project by  Tara Goudarzi & Atefeh Khas

Statement
Atefeh and Tara have been offering joint works called "low art" for some years. Both of them entered Shahed Faculty of Art in 2004 and learned "how to paint" in the classes they attended. Having been Introduced to prof .Ahmad Nadealian, a member of the university Board of Science and Environmental Art distinguished artist, they tended to environmental art.
Their first feminine joint work was called Peydayesh(Genesis).The work was a performance ending in arrangement. One of them was weaving a chain in center by a hook. The other hung chains from an invisible roof top which was made from threads and trees in work place, the yard. They created a colorful delicate world in this work of art.
Everywhere they take trip, they are on and off seen hook in hand, weaving bracelets and gifting them to their friends whom they've found during their trip.
Bracelets are different in color and what they express from one trip to another. But they are always gifted as a symbol of affection and friendship.
Weavings are prepared beforehand; weavings in the form of flowers connected in a geometrical order(Atefeh's weavings) or a hollow circle in center around which small to big rings are gathered(Tara's weavings)..
These weavings are sometimes embedded in a corner in nature or sometimes cover as a roof over a particular place.
"Another Roof" is the name of a collection performed for the first time in the church of Portugal Castle in Hormuz Island. Another roof is seen in the form of regular or irregular weaving in an architectural space or in a corner in open space, in nature. These weavings in among hard materials of architectural space gives a feeling of delicacy, gift and heal. Beneath this soft construction from its pores you can see another world, in between you can see a feminine quest.
Along with trips to different regions, Atefeh and Tara place their weavings in particular places in nature in a work collection called "A Flower for Nature" that is a sign of feminine presence and a gift to nature to make that place bold in the viewer's mind.
