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.

Although this realisation was initially very hard to accept, my daily practice of art has brought new dimensions to my world of art. Art is such consolation. Read more
