OGR Torino returns to Venice to present a trio of Iranian artists Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, and Hesam Rahmanian and their new site-specific project curated by Samuele Piazza. The title ALLUVIUM refers to clay, silt, or gravel deposits left behind by running water, and it can be interpreted in several ways. It reminds of the materiality of the paintings and their physical support made of earth, though it can also be read as a metaphor of the remnants of a more abstract flow: the debris left behind by the flow of news and of history, which the artists look for, collect, and parse to give new life to, in an act of cultural resistance and counter-narrative creation. Iron sculptures hold a set of painted terracotta plates, compositions and constellations hovering mid-air, in delicate balance.
