- “Painting and Sketch” by A. Sadigzade 2007
Sadigzade is primarily known as a painter, who also engages in graphic work and stage design. In recent years, his flexible and visual imagina­tion has led him to explore his ideas in monumental three-dimensional art objects – the series of welded metal constructions entitled The Mechanics of Space.
This artist creates his sculptures as if they were multi-dimensional paintings. His work exemplifies a new discovery of the world through its colourful, self-constructing text, teeming with “apparatuses”, hieroglyphs, esoteric epistles, palm trees, anthropomorphic machines, extra-terrestrial “guardians”, star observers and people.
Moreover Altai Sadigzade was the designer of the Museum of Modern Art in Baku; he was responsible for the concept behind the architectural design. The interior space, with its sloping walls and without doors or corners, was designed especially with avantgarde art in mind, allowing the art and the building containing it to enjoy a symbiosis. His sculptural metal constructions, installations and paint­ed canvases are incorporated into the museum. He has also been instrumental in selecting the museum’s collection and curating its exhibitions.
