faig ahmed’s Embroidered Art
When you think of traditional carpets from Azerbaijan, the thought of contemporary art does not quickly spring to mind… but these beautiful, and modern works will change that. Faiq Ahmed, a native of the Eurasian nation, has taken his countries old-school art form and brought it beautifully into the current era, deconstructing the ancient process of weaving and adapting it to todays contemporary art forms.

In March 2012, I visited the discrete warehouses Ludlow Santo Domingo Library. Preserved in Geneva since 2003, this collection belonged to the Colombian businessman and friend of the arts Julio Mario Santo Domingo Jr. After his death, all the works were transferred to Harvard University. It is a few days before the cartons leave for the United States as I could, with the help of Dylan Perrenoud (photographer), make a record of this set of books and articles, also called The Fritz Hugh Ludlow Memorial Library, initiated in 1970 by Michael Horowitz, Cynthia Palmer, William Dailey and Robert Barker. Ludlow Santo Domingo Library is known specialists and enthusiasts, to be the largest collection of books on the history of psychotropic and psychedelic drugs.
Installing LSD Library is composed of an all-over digital print depicting shelves books and articles sham. The books are reproduced in 1:1 scale and all securities are perfectly legible.
