Shirin Gallery is proud to unveil the first solo exhibition of Hamed Norouzi
titled Sting Therapy.
Hamed Norouzi, born in Tehran in 1991, has been graduated from Architecture.
He has many group exhibitions inside and outside of Iran, and
Sting Therapy is his first solo exhibition. In 2019 he also won the Nord Art prize from Germany.
His interest in art history, especially visual art, is the most important
reason for using the art history characters as the main characters of
his paintings. In this collection, he tries to give new meaning to
these characters in a unique atmosphere by using parody.
This humorous approach is presented in a hermeneutic way,
which leads the audiences to search for their approaches
and achieve the new meaning, which is sometimes far from
the artist's imagination. But certainly, this semantic interpretation
is in the direction that has led the artist to create forms.
Also, he says about this collection: "In one of the East Asian beliefs,
a strange reason for the sanctity of bees' caught my attention.
The natives do not move or bury their bodies because of their sanctity.
Sometimes bees find the skeleton of a cow's chest an excellent
place to build and set up a hive there.
The natives believe that bees are the spirits of sacred cows.
It is as if a semantic collapse recreates another meaning."
