The 10 Best Booths at Art Basel Hong Kong 2024


In "The 10 Best Booths at Art Basel Hong Kong 2024", Payal Uttam, writing for, lists notable presentations at the prestigious South Asian art fair, among them Dastan Gallery booth, which chose to present only one artist – Mohsen Vaziri Moghaddam. The article quotes Dastan director, Hormoz Hematian, who explains the process that led to the creation of these monumental works: “All of the works on view were created in 2016, when the artist’s eyesight was waning and he wasn’t able to precisely control tools. Instead, he used his body to create action paintings on the floor. That’s why the size is so much larger and the movements are more full." Moghaddam’s spontaneous process begins with layering paint, then applying glue and sand and pulling his fingers across the surface to create gestural marks. "The pièce de résistance of the booth," the article adds, "is a nearly 20-foot-long sand painting in vibrant blue-green and pale pink hues, layered with dramatic black marks."
