Method Kala Ghoda presents Handle with Care, a solo exhibition by young contemporary artist Yaazd Contractor. The exhibition features a mix of light sculptures, vases, grills and furniture using industrial and metal glass. The most striking elements among the carefully selected components currently on show are the contrasting relationships of the objects: cinder and glass, mass produced prefabricated steel parts and the in-danger-of-extinction art of cold cathode neon, the long yet ethereal duration of digital images and the quick withering of flowers and more.

The artist’s creations carefully balance and represent duality between rigid, structural implementations of art while still exploring the permeability of clinical mediums such as prefabricated hardware and construction materials. All of Yaazd’s projects coexist between the digital as well as the physical world where they fall out of their real-world applications and into heterotopias of their own.
