Arts & Culture | Farid Rasulov

Farid Rasulov, a doctor by training and artist by choice, works with a wide range of artistic media. His serie “Carpet Interiors” is a striking installation in which European-style living room are covered every inch with Azerbaijani carpets, emblems of national heritage. Fascinated by the clash between Eastern and Western aesthetics, he created surreal spaces inhabited by all-white sculptures of animals, as suspended waiting for something unrevealed. The patterned room might be a cage as well as a shelter. It might be a place of sadness and loneliness such as a spot of calmness and serenity. The only thing we know is that, both damned or peaceful places, those rooms are incredibly fascinating and irresistible. I want to be there, now.
