Exploring Inward, Exhibition of works by Aida Mahmudova & Faig Ahmed, Southwark Cathedral, London 2015
YOUNG AZERBAIJANI ARTISTS
Baku’s contemporary art scene is booming like never before. Boosted by the profile-raising Museum of Modern Art, housed in an impressive new building by Jean Nouvel, and supported by the Yarat organisation’s tireless promotional work, an emerging generation of artistic talent is reinventing the cultural life of the Azerbaijani capital as quickly as the city is rebuilding itself. Two of the country’s brightest talents, Faig Ahmed and Aida Mahmudova, are showcased in a special show at the Louise Blouin Foundation.
... Understand ‘Exploring Inward’ as an experiment,
just as Faig Ahmed experiments in his works; and expect
it to be spacious, just like Aida Mahmudova's sea of
memories, her perception of inner landscape and its
connection with the outer world...
