Art United Arab Emirates 2022
By: Orkhan Mammadov

In SINGULARITY IN HERITAGE Orkhan Mammadov transforms Eastern visual arts, crafts, traditions and motifs into an experiment of cultural memory. He brings to life new imagined rugs, opening a space for dialogue between past and future, dystopia and utopia. The work documents and preserves cultural history and tradition in the NFT future. As a result, Mammadov pushes the boundaries of tradition and the digital, questioning the role of technology as a form of memory and a tool of power.
