Faig Ahmed: Embroidered Space

Faig Ahmed explores composition of a traditional Azerbaijanian carpet by disjointing its structure and placing its elements into open space. With his large-scale piece titled "thread installation", Faig re-interpreted the traditional carpet materials of his homeland by creating a type of spatial 'stitching' with the yarn across the surface of a wall. Speaking about his work Faig says, "I’ve been always fond of investigating and researching every detail of anything that had interested me and sometimes this researches reached inconceivable depths mixing up with my imagination. I’m heretofore harried by a question others have left in childhood – 'what is inside?. That’s why I’m changing habitual and visually static objects making them spatial, giving them a new depth.and this as if reveals the essence of this object – the object that was mediocre just a minute ago."
