Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art is delighted to host the largest and most extensive presentation of the work of Iranian-born Dutch artist Navid Nuur. This, his first-ever solo exhibition in a UK institution, shows from 13 March to 26 May 2013. (Preview: 12 March, 6.30 to 9 p.m.)
Nuur’s works are based on phenomenological experiences. He commonly attributes transformative properties to found objects, thereby repositioning their function, meaning and impact in ways that provide viewers with a whole new experience.
Whilst often sculptural in form, Nuur’s works are neither sculpture nor installations, forms which he considers to be too immobile and rigid to produce the spatial and temporal interaction he wants them to have with their environment and viewers. Although often referred to as a conceptual artist, Nuur’s art refuses to be simply the physical manifestation of an idea or concept. Rather, his work is imbued with a certain feeling and subjectivity, in which temporary or interim situations and opportunities play an important role.
