Rope sculpture and Iranian calligraphy by Ramin Takloo-Bighash
Inspired by Ramin’s childhood in a fishing town on the Persian Gulf and his love for movies, this popup show features a sculpture built from rope, found wood, and images of his favorite Iranian movies, set in a site specific presentation of Iranian calligraphy.
Ramin Takloo-Bighash is an Iranian artist living in Evanston. He learned Iranian calligraphy from his father and from Reza Seyed Anab as a teenager in Iran. He has lived in the US since 1995. He has shown his work at the Brothers K coffee shop in Evanston, Evanston Art Center, and the Ice House Gallery.
