Platform 101 is holding its third international group exhibition entitled “Glitch: Aesthetic of the Pixels”.

After the great success of Vol.2, Platform 101,a nonprofit and independent art institution, is continuing the Glitch Video Art Group Exhibition in Tehran,Iran Vol.03, entitled “Glitch: Aesthetic of the Pixels”, curated by Mohammad Ali Famori, featuring 27 international glitch artists from 5th-12th November 2021 at Pejman Foundation: Kandovan.

Since 2019, Platform 101 mission, in collaboration with Art Researcher and Famori Studio, revolves around establishing a solid foundation for digital arts and new media in Iran by supporting the artists and musicians and expanding the knowledge of glitch art among the Iranian community. On the third edition of these exhibitions they are rereading the definition of Glitch Art in collaboration with Aleph Team and supported by  The Holy Art and Fine Art Shippers.

The ambiguity formed in the Glitch language pursues two functions; on one hand, it makes the pixel as the smallest component of the digital image that carries a new form of its independent identity, on the other hand it allows the audience to look into the distorted and and damaged images and participate in the aesthetic effects with their own interpretations.    

Pixel aesthetic in glitch art is a discourse that moves from the whole to parts and subsequently from parts to the whole, creating a cycle that makes us look at pixels as independent and aesthetic elements. Therefore, glitch artists redefine the pixel language and its aesthetics in our minds by creating works to introduce the value and nature of pixels apart from the typical public opinions about noise.

The structural contradictions and apparent similarities between pixel and visual languages have led the glitch artists to use all the available features and strategies of the visual language.
