Amir H. Fallah: Post Stagecraft

When: Sept. 5-Oct. 19 2008

If you see a man of Middle Eastern complexion rummaging through your dumpster next week, don’t call the cops. Or perhaps you’ll see him wandering through the dunes on Sullivan’s Island, collecting armfuls of shells, littered debris, and probably, a cactus. Iranian-born, Los Angeles-based surrealist Amir H. Fallah has more than made his mark on the art world, globe-trotting to build abstract, illustrious sculptures of items discarded and found naturally in the locales he visits. Although they often resemble a cluttered terrarium, for his “Post Stagecraft” appearance at Redux he’ll remove his Plexiglas walls to create his piece atop a 7’ x 14’ pedestal platform. Fallah is also the founder and creative directory of the international art and culture magazine Beautiful/Decay, so he’s constantly witnessing the best of modern innovation first hand. His scavenger, “poetry of memory” site-specific piece at Redux will be accompanied by a series of the artist’s paintings, which mirror the pedestal/fort motif of his sculptures. It’s worth a visit to www.amirhfallah.com for a visual explanation of his style. —Stratton Lawrence
