What they say

Farid Hamedi? Which Farid Hamedi? Strange graphic artist? The painter and the critic are against the direction of what is fashion? Director and producer of video arts have suspended from the twentieth to the twenty-second century? An unpredictable guitarist and percussion player? Now, whatever you want, you know it yourself. But about Farid Hamedi who is my friend and the resultant of all above and multiplied, I have to say you have any projects, just try to say a short sentence about your request. Of course, I hope you have the ability to say in one sentence, then he gazed at your eyes and made a mysterious silence… it means it’s done. Go to your home, enjoy your coffee, rest, continue your life, and do not follow the work. Do not show off your knowledge and do not even call him. Be assure and feel comfortable. Soon you have something beyond your imagination. I should say that… .
Karen Homayounfar Composer
Farid Hamedi: I like his smiles, honesty and companionship.Farid Hamedi: I like his reverence to Ahmad Shamlu (Contemporary Iranian poet), the avant-garde poetry and his understanding of poeticism. Farid Hamedi: I like his understanding of colors and frames and his outlook of image.Farid Hamedi has a first-hand experience of war, and still carries impacts of the war incidents.He has experienced authorship as well. These all being experiences made up of the same context as life itself and not just a bunch of haphazardly collated attempts. Farid and I have decided to create works joining music and image; a few video-arts count as the fruits of this existential tie so far, which I cherish and the memories of which I adore. Farid is someone who does not only look at his own country in his works: he focuses on the issue of 'human' from different perspectives. He looks at 'tomorrow'. He is of the artists who understand the principles, and has chosen 'working' and 'creating' over the mere 'nagging'. He loves what he does--and I love these all.

Point of view

“An artist is not a solitary genius; neither is he a sacred aura attached to his works. The artist is closely tied up with the people, society and milieu. He receives the impacts from all around him, and can eventually and mutually influence them. The relationship is a living tie. No borders can confine the artist within its boxes and lines, for, the tones, issues, challenges and shades that impact him are infinite and not bound to a certain setting. My video arts solemnly, but artistically proclaim the voices of the communities in which I dwell, or take my journeys. My vision, inspiration and creation reflects my outlook towards the world around and continue to be closely associated with various aspects of the human life, his individual and collective stories. The rise of the new millennium has given way to a new paradigm; one which does not allow for the artists’ solitude and segregation from the world around; one which shifts the way they create and collaborate. To me, making the work of art is a not a mere process. It is a journey; a journey both from the world within and towards it.”
