It No Longer Ties The Room Together

‘Doubts’: an extraordinary sculptural rug created over the months of lockdown in Baku by Azerbaijani textile artist Faig Ahmed.

In former Soviet republic, rug pees on you, etc.

More of Ahmed’s glitchy textiles here.

        Textiles can be considered Fine Art,
        yes we’ll executed but I’d end up going mad if that was on my floor/ wall,
        reassuringly lines up desk

          …every time I look at this I think Gustav Klimt…always thought his paintings would look better on the floor rather than a wall…

      In fairness
      Given the strain the in-house Playwright’s column took today

      I think it’s worth knowing if Faig Ahmed went to a fancy Art School
      Or did he serve his time as an apprentice to a Master Carpet Weaver
      Don’t you?

          the problem is with fancy art schools is that the teachers are often failed artists who take it out on their students or try push you in the direction they see art taking, make it personal when you don’t want them licking the back of your neck or make a disgusted face when they show you a landscape video of their girlfriends anus,
          they were also some of the best days of my life but I learned a lot more working under master printers on an actual working studio and worked a lot harder ;)

            where the holy mudder of ga
            did you go to school

            btw thanks for proving my point about the Apprenticeship route to any trade/ craft/ technical skilled specialist/ profession

            Actually stuck me nose into this a bit now
            His stuff is out of this world
            in fairness

            really accomplished and acclaimed

            anyway, the lad did Sculptur, and graduated from the Azerbijan Academy of Fine Arts in 2004
            And was featured in Azerbijan’s tent at the Venice Biennalle by 2007
            I’m no artist or the like, but that sounds pretty impressive to me

            He creates these Rug Sculptures with a team of Highly Skilled Weavers in his Workshop
            Studio I suppose

            and he has some for sale here
            https://www.artsy.net/artist/faig-ahmed/works-for-sale
            I suppose if you have to ask
            you can’t afford

            lovely stuff
            but you’d need the gaff
            and the millionaire life
            to really make them a part of yours

            I’d throw one in my bedouin tent oasis getaway, for when I feel like charging over the dunnes on my arab stallion, after I’ll lounge around on it and a few cushions, eating fresh dates and almonds as I watch the sun set.
