More about the exhibiition
  The first look at Gorji's sculptures may lead us to this not very accurate interpretation that we are facing formalistic works; that are only after experiencing forms and expanding the function of materials. But knowing the lived experience and the mentality of the artist will open new windows for reading the works; those windows will consequently show us that the main priority of these works is not the form but the concept. Broken spheres which showing insides; or the ones that like a light source or an absorbing cavity attract or excrete reconstructed rays of light resemble an abstracted image of the universe; a universe which we may never find a chance to look at from the outside. A mega-gigantic realm that is expanding enormously for millions of years. Whatever gets added to this expanding range; we inevitably consider impossible; because what we know as existence is limited to this enlarging realm.Hourad Gorji is fond of contemplation in the universe. He is amazed with watching the cemetery above our head in the day and night; the stars which are long last dead but their photons are still in the way to reach the spectator's eyes and thus reproduce an image belonging to millions of years ago. Gorji started his works with glass spheres spreading metal beams; hanging from the roof as though recreating the moment in which photons are departing the source.Further in his other works, the glass made spheres became metal with different colors; got fissioned and slowly receded being an orb. The rays of light were no longer radiating from the surface; but the core; and the rays are made from the same material as the orb. Gorji passes this stage as well and in his latest works the rays are getting absorbed from an unknown source to the inside. These "absorbing" spheres could be interpreted as poetic representation of black-holes in the sky.The black-holes absorb even the photons radiation from their surfaces and thus remain invisible to us forever -because our visual perception is simply dependent to the photons radiating from the surface of objects. Hourad Gorji tried to picture those eternal invisibles in an imaginary level. He invites his audience to look inside the fissioned spheres. The bright burnished inside that is supposed to remain "inside" and not to flaunt; now boasts more than ever and compared to the rough surface of the orbs invites the audience to pass the barrier of the skin and reach the core.The new series of Gorji is an ode for "secret intuition". He opens his spheres in front of the audience so that one passes the thick surface and watches the bright layers of elements of the universe.Black-holes devour everything; here the smooth concave "inside" -which has turned into a syncline mirror- reflects the universe in a much smaller stage. We get captured by these spheres; not able to escape. Such metaphor underlines the presence of the black-holes in the new series of Gorji; small but powerful black-holes that invites the audience to the inside!
