More details

Aidan is an Azeri and Russian artist based in Moscow and Carrara, Italy, who works in sculpture, painting, drawing and video. Revelations curated by Jenny Christensson will bring together new work, alongside works exhibited at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art in 2012. 

The veiled figure is the protagonist in Aidan's enigmatic, often playfully erotic, narrative cycles, which contain references to traditional and religious symbols that set out to deconstruct and challenge the patriarchal order. In this body of work, the artist recreates the sealed-off feminine intimacy of the harem and appears to celebrate female hegemony and self-sufficiency. Revelations opens with two rooms dedicated to this earlier series.
