Amin Sadeghy, an artist and architect living in London, crafts personal work that implements architectural figures at varying scales and elaborate sets and configurations. The works seem to use the human bodies as both faceless design elements and reflections on the power of crowds. At close range and from afar, these intricate structures create different conversations.
“Amin Sadeghy’s recent body of work is a reflection on the crowd of people in particular architectural settings and forms,” the artist says, in a statement. “He is fascinated by the form, pattern, movement, feeling and the power of the collectives in contemporary society.”
The artist’s practice and research are focused on “Islamic architecture and in particular in Iranian vernacular art and architecture.” In these still and animated works, the idea of ritual and everyday interactions are explored. “Amin’s previous works were inspired by the dome in Islamic architecture as a concept,” the statement says. “Its structure, pattern, texture, colour, light, geometry, form and their meaning, concentrating on Its circular form which resembles infinity and sky. His recent works are centered around people and their occupation of space under these domes.”
