Persian born Retrofuturist contemporary artist Firouz FarmanFarmaian currently represents the Kyrgyz Republic at the 59th Biennale di Venezia with his post tribal multivalent installation ’Gates of Turan’. Firouz has announced his ‘Biennale drop’ set for 12-06-22 deploying a collection of 8 OG video motioned official NFT’s plus extras linked to the eight official physical artworks present inside his Venetian Pavilion through November 2022.
The drop is strategically set to launch on Art Basel VIP preview day and will be followed by a weekend of multi-screen viewings and events in Venice sponsored by Domaines du Vicomte de Nouë Marinic biodynamic wines in the presence of the artist, team and partners, featuring the truly Decentralized MINTII NFT platform. Led by British-Iranian Artist-Designer-Architect Farbod M. Mehr, MINTII is the force behind the drop coordinating production and launch in close collaboration with the artist and Pavilion Producers We R the Nomads Agency.
FarmanFarmaian’s radical approach to his practice is embodied by his Ecology of Soul Manifesto 2020 drop trouncing NFT trash, here echoed by his partnering with MINTII truly decentralized NFT platform and its support of Iranian artists in reaction to the Opensea ban on Persian artists.
The drop marks FarmanFarmaian’s wish to go past the simple NFT format proposing to call his physical-digital creations Syncretics- mirroring ideas of overlaying interaction between the material and the immaterial.
Also present, Janet Rady Fine Art listing the Drop on Artland, Nouvelle Vague Artspaces featuring the OG NFTs on their online platform, NFT Gallery Morrow Collective as promotional partners, Unique Multiples Art Advisory, special guests from Kyrgyzstan NFT collective Ilgari Foundation and GATES OF TURAN main partner SJ Global Investments / Our Wonderful Culture from Dubai.
