Thread installation by Faig Ahmed

Often working with carpet and its fabrication, Azerbaijani artist Faig Ahmed explores and redefines its process with his large-scale piece Thread installation.


The artwork unravels and re-interprets the material used in traditional Azerbaijan rug manufacture by simulating a type of stitching with the yarn across the surface of a wall.


The fiber is carefully arranged in re-imagined customary motifs across the panel, then interrupted with stretches of the colorful thread – spanning the space it occupies.


In essence, Ahmed explores the composition of a traditional Azerbaijanian floor cloth by disjointing its structure and placing its canonic elements into open space, touching upon a sancta sanctorum of Azerbaijanian rug-making custom.
