Description

In the outside area of Carlo Bilotti Museum
The light, Noor in Persian language, is the principal element of Bizhan Bassiri’s work.

The sculpture Specchio Solare is back in Italy after its success in the exhibition dedicated to Bassiri at the AUN Gallery in Tehran. In Rome, in the Carlo Bilotti Museum the work will get in touch with the green heart of the city creating a link between the two capitals and their cultures both living in the artist himself.

The word Noor clearly refers to the natural light which will put in touch the sculpture Specchio Solare by Bizhan Bassiri with the space surrounding it, freeing it from its basic function of reflecting surface to turn it into a place where the light becomes shape. On Bilotti Museum’s door the Italian- Persian artist makes an act of continuity in the space creating a passage on a new dimension, therefore activating an endless series of returns between real and imaginary.
