Hossein Ghaemi: Enter at the intermission
Saturday, 29 April 2017, 6-8pm

Curated by Joanna Bayndrian
Presented by Salt Projects

Australian artist Hossein Ghaemi's first performance in China, Enter at the intermission transforms Salt Projects' shopfront into a surreal, theatrical environment, encouraging playful interactions between performers, costumes, space, set and audience. 

Centring around a makeshift alter, Ghaemi assumes the role of conductor of an improvised ritual featuring a cast of unnamed characters, figures of the unconscious and folds of the self that expand and contract into multiple configurations.     

Enter at the intermission comprises three parts: Act One, Intermission and Act Two. 

Ghaemi's costumes are all handmade by his mum in Sydney. 
Hossein Ghaemi is represented by The Commercial Gallery, Sydney, Australia 

Artist's Biography

Hossein Ghaemi (b. 1985, Tehran) presents surreal scenarios via real and imaginary characters. Secrecy and the unconscious, theatricality and mysticism operate as veiling elements in his paintings, sculptures, installations and performances.

Since 2009, Ghaemi has developed an impressive series of surreal performance works that employ choirs for which he creates a score, abstract libretto as well as full costuming, styling and choreographing of singers. 

Ghaemi was selected for Primavera 2014: Young Australian Artists at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, his first major exhibition in a public institution.

In 2010, Ghaemi completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) at Sydney College of the Arts, The University of Sydney. Since then he has actively exhibited principally in artist-run-initiatives in Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart and developed performances for festivals and arts programs in Sydney and Melbourne. Solo exhibitions (excluding performances) include WIDE BLUE YONDER AND THE ALMIGHTY HOOF (a painting show!) at The Commercial Gallery, Sydney (2014); a temporary outdoor sculpture, Bush Node and the Second Fiddle, for the artist-run public art program, Plinth Projects, in Melbourne's Edinburgh Gardens (2014); Spirit Awl Hickey, Vox Talent / Crest of the Pious Hex-dump! at The Commercial Gallery, Sydney (2013).

侯赛因·格埃梅:中场加入
2017年4月29日星期六 6-8pm

 

澳大利亚艺术家侯赛因·格埃梅在中国的第一次表演”中场加入”将Salt Projects的门脸空间转化为一个超现实的戏剧环境,期间表演者、服装、空间、道具与观众之间将发生俏皮互动。

作为权宜之计,格埃梅承担了即兴仪式指挥者的角色,通过收放无名的角色、无意识的人物以及自我的褶皱从而形成表演的多重配置。

“中场加入“包括三个部分:第一幕、中场和第二幕。

格埃梅所用服装均由他在悉尼的妈妈手工制作。

“中场加入”由Joanna Bayndrian策划,Salt Projects主办。
侯赛因·格埃梅由澳大利亚悉尼的商业画廊(The Commercial Gallery)代理
