Lit Shadow
4 October -1 November, 2013

Regarded as one of the most influential sculptors of Iran, Mohammad-Hossein Emad holds his third solo show with Assar Art Gallery.
The exhibition comprises six of his latest works from the Lit Shadow series in which he uses sheets of corrugated polypropylene and light for the first time.
In this collection, Emad portrays his lifetime concern - the driving force of nature and the interconnection between contrary forces - through familiar forms made of different material.
Gone through a reverse route of creation by adding layers of synthetic material rather than his routine method of hollowing out natural tree trunks, Emad aesthetically materializes once again his perpetual interest in void in a number of weighty looking sculptures with honeycombed internal makeup, reflecting light through their cells.
With his choice of material, the spatial forms he creates and the way he places them in space, Emad invites his audience once again to view the works interactively.
Born in 1957 in Arak, Iran, Mohammad-Hossein Emad lives and works in Tehran. He has exhibited worldwide in the past twenty years and won many awards. Several of his works are installed in public spaces in Tehran and other cities of Iran. His work has been exposed in several art fairs and national and international biennales and included in very important collections.
