Hiva Alizadah (b. 1989 in Tehran, Iran) lives and works in Iran. Alizadeh is a self-trained artist who embarked on his artistic activities with directing experimental films but pretty soon, sculpture took over as the lion’s share of his activities. The room between painting and sculpture has permanently remained enchanting to him for work and study. The hair, as though a remainder of a living creature, is the matter (material) that makes it possible for him to make something neither as a painting nor a sculpture but the suspension between the two could project it as both painting and sculpture. This invites viewers for establishing connection as if it is the connection that he’s always been in a quest for in all his works subconsciously. Balouchestan (project), The Hair (paintings-Sculpture), The Cobble (film) and Ping Pong (Installation) are all searching for making connections. To date, he’s done directing some experimental films as well as a research-based documentary on art and society, participated myriads of group exhibitions putting his statues to view, and showcased his works in some individual exhibitions in Contemporary Art Galleries.
