Siah Armajani. Fallujah


Fifth number of the Collection Apuntes de Estética ARTIUM, published for the first showing in the world of the work Fallujah, by Siah Armajani. In this piece, Siah Armajani, a veteran North American artist of Iranian origin, has created a modern version of Pablo Picasso's denouncement of the suffering of the civil population in wars, exactly 25 years after Guernica was returned to Spain and 70 years after the bombardment of Gernika. The work alludes to the image of one of the thousands of houses destroyed during the siege of the Iraqi city of Fallujah by North American troops in 2004 and the death of the family who once lived there. Armajani, who has gained an international reputation with his public sculptures, points out on this occasion that the work of the Malaga-born artist is not finished and that each generation of artists is responsible for reviving Picasso’s message in line with contemporary events. Fallujah is a joint proposal by ARTIUM (Vitoria-Gasteiz), the Fundación Arte y Naturaleza (Huesca) and the Fundación César Manrique (Lanzarote). Made with BASSARAI ARTE.
