Rossi & Rossi Hong Kong presents a big solo exhibition on the work and the career of the artist Siah Armajani, on view from 18 February to 15 April 2017. The artist is considered as a pioneering figure in the conceptualisation of the role of art in the public realm.
The exhibition shows early drawings on paper and fabric, ideational architectural models, large-scale sculpture and recent
works on paper, demonstrating Armajani’s mastery in artistic achievement. His artistic practice is inspired by poetry, American vernacular architecture, Western philosophy and his native Persian heritage.
The exhibition will offer a comprehensive viewing of architecturally scaled sculptures that reflect significant movements in the
artist’s career, including Bridge Over a Tree (1970), The Art of Bridgemaking 2 & 3 (1974) and Street Corner No. 2 (1995).
