In the recent years, I have developed an interest in connecting art and architecture in order to provide a conceptual space to examine socio-cultural issues. Meanwhile, my interests in my Iranian heritage has increased immensely. In the Summer of 2009, the Vehbi KoÁ Foundation invited me to Istanbul to conduct a research on nomadic Persian carpets in relation to architecture. With the research results I began producing installations of architectural scale models, using the patterns as a blueprint.

Babak Golkar
Multi-disciplinary artist whose practice, at its fundamental roots, takes aim to deconstruct, recontextualize and rearrange our perceptions of the world around us. Like Zen koans, Golkarís work seems to arrive at new understandings by setting up impossible questions. At itís core is a spirit of unbridled philosophical investigation; one that exhibits a Duchampian twist on the visual pun mixed with a Gestalt sense of multistability and reification. Golkarís work understands both the destructive and regenerative aspects of perspective and shifting visions; and fundamentally contests the fixity of subject and object and space.
