About the show

"Less is more" by Mohsen Boroojerdian. April 17 - June 18 2018.

"Less is more" - architecture - is a phrase adopted in 1947 by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe as a precept for Minimalist design and architecture. Mohsen Boroojerdian, Iranian artist and photographer based in Rome, proposed for the WAG a way to eliminate the chaos of the buildings that crowd the streets from the sight, rearranging that chaos giving to it harmony and simplicity through the use of composition, minimalist shapes and geometries.

“A selective gaze guides my photographs, every time I have placed more and more attention to the details of a composition; then moving from a total vision to a focus on the particular - to fully understand the subject I have analyzed every single part of it, to have a complete observation both of the details and of its totality”. Mohsen Boroojerdian

About the WAG

Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born on 2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room fitting into people's pocket (suitable for all mobile platforms). Every month, the WAG hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific context. So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an online archive that creates a permanent collection.
