Mardomak’s Sculpture is 17 pieces of cooked clay, made as a puzzle, each piece is between 10 to 15 cm.
The work has been chosen for an exhibition called Unhomely, as a poster on outside wall of Fluc in Vienna.
The concept comes from a modern poetry from Nima/ Iran: Literal meaning: I have my eyes on your way; Symbolized: I’m waiting for you (To Ra Man Chashm Dar Raham)
The concept of the artwork has been compatible with the theme of Unhomely exhibition.
From the curator: ‘ In the exhibition ‘the unhomely’ we seek to reflect on the condition of in-betweenness and the insiders-outsideness, by approaching our own backgrounds’ read more
