Luca Curci – How is being an artist nowdays?
Mohammad Ali Famori – The art can develop in the first step by disposing economical fields and secondly, by providing cultural topics. Today, by relinquishing boundaries, we encounter some mutual and cultural matters with some differences which facing globalization is the result. Now, I presume that, joining the globalization is our main duty! In the mean time i tried to emphasize on mutual cultures and the main procedure of my works is to find and review the symbols and mutual basics in cultural-based field and to produce art works without any prejudice and orientations that might be the results of geographical determinists. And I hope with all of my heart that art society will evaluate my works regardless of my being an eastern artists.

L.C. – What artistic projects do you have for the future? Is there any possibilities for a new participation in some Italian exhibitions?
M.A.F. – I would like to attend all the European artistic events and I really appreciate Italian cultural back ground; I wonder if I can attend to Italian events exclusively! My next project is to join an exhibition held in Arcansas, in US, which emphasizes on the media and its effects on the unconsciousness of people by reviewing symbols and signs in advertisements and media. These effects, depended on the society’s feedback, will change norms and even the essence of our myths.

L.C. – What do you think about the concept of CONTEMPORARY VENICE –ARCHITECTURES OF IDENTITIES? In which way did it inspire you?
M.A.F. – I I think this kind of events are a cue for pervading globalization and eighteen artists around the world without any religious matters attend to this event and I believe that it’s the art’s nature that breaks the boundaries and creates global identity. One of my main goals for taking part in exhibitions is to find a free and real space where to create art; and also to find virtuosos with mutual concerns in mutual cultural fields.

L.C. – Are you satisfied with this experience?
M.A.F. – I really appreciate this event and I would like to attend it again.

L.C. – What do you think about the organization of CONTEMPORARY VENICE – ARCHITECTURES OF IDENTITY?
M.A.F. – I think this exhibition should have a private site to introduce artist’s works becuase nowdays internet is the best way to find artists.

L.C. – What is your idea about It’s Liquid Group? 
M.A.F. – I presume that this group is one of the main and most important events in Italy and Italy is one of the most applaudable countries around the world in providing cultural unity.
