Twenty-nine year old Faig Ahmed has taken to the traditional arts of tapestry and needlepoint, but unlike his more prim predecessors, churns out pieces with an edgy, unraveled appeal. Faig’s collection of carpets and woven sculptures are re-imagined and reinterpreted works of the carpets of Azerbaijan, where he was born.
“I’ve been always fond of investigating and researching every detail of anything that had interested me, and sometimes this research reaches inconceivable depths mixing up with my imagination,” explains the artist. “That’s why I’m changing habitual and visually static objects making them spatial, giving them a new depth. And this ‘as if’ reveals the essence of this object—the object that was mediocre just a minute ago.”
