About

Reciprocating ETHBerlin04’s theme of identity crisis, 'Necking the Night,' part of ARIAN’s forthcoming Teilkunstwerk, ‘Mithraion,’ continues where the artist’s previous works, FISKs: Integral Sprawl (Miami Art Week 2022) and Wraithportrait (Sein Porträt) (CADAF NYC 2022), left off. The point of departure for all three works is the seemingly endless ‘sprawl’ initiated by the artist ever since leaving Germany, after completion of his time as artist-in-residence at the Stiftung Künstlerdorf Schöppingen, which has rendered his whereabouts a subject of perpetual study. Fragments from the work are spread throughout the Internet, from Ars Electronica’s Gardens and Artsy’s Viewing Rooms to Deca, the Open Metaverse, abandoned Discord groups and smart contracts, in tandem with land-art modules equally disseminated across continents, starting with the founding fragments in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), where the work was originally conceived as site-specific, next to Stefan Sous’ Flunki Kiel (Dekonstruktionen, 1995-99), with 30 corresponding fragments minted to Ethereum (2020-21).

Arian Bagheri Pour Fallah, known mononymously as ARIAN, is an artist and author. Arian’s works have been presented at and catalogued by, among others, the Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI), Ars Electronica, Miami Art Week, Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics, and the Royal Musical Association (RMA). Arian has exhibited and performed in New York, London, Miami, Zürich, Barcelona, among others, and is published by MIT Press and Cambridge University Press, respectively. Arian’s research is located at the interface of anthropologies of science and religion, spanning fields and subjects as discrete as computational science, metamaterials, multimodal integration; the hard problem of consciousness, free will, and theology; to hermeneutics, monetary theory, and urban sprawl — with key contributions to visual culture, dramaturgy and theory of art.
