Born in 1984 Tehran, Iran. Bahman Kermany is a young emerging artist currently based in Sydney.  Bahman Kermany now brings his exhibition Oryan II to Disorder Gallery.

These works are based on the Iranian book, “Faces of two women” by Saidi Sirjani in which he examined the 12 century Nezami’s manuscript of Leyli and Majnun. Having established himself as a great romantic poet in Persian literature, Nezami took the story of Arabic origin (Leyli & Majnun) and transcribed it as a romantic love story.

Oryan II is an exhibition that explores the relationship between History and mythology. “Oryan” in Farsi indicates the bareness of the truth, and also points to another aspect, whether the work is based on History or mythology, it will always contain traces of both.

Join us for the opening of D/O.18 Bahman Kermany's Oryan II on Thursday, July 19th from 6-8pm at Disorder Gallery.

Bringing Sculptural Structure to Disorder

D/O, Event, OpeningElliott Cole

Picking up the threads of minimalism, kinetic art and optical art from the 60s, the work of Alan Rose is reminiscent of a time when art became less about the emotional state of the artist than the mental state of the viewer. The approach to his unique sculptural pieces links with Sol LeWitt’s conceptualism, where “planning and decision-making are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair”. 

Using no direct representation, Alan’s art operates from the universal to the particular and investigates the boundary between order and chaos.


Join us for the opening of D/O.15 Alan Rose on May 3rd 6-8pm at Disorder Gallery.
