Its not chaos Rashed Alakbarov

I saw this sculpture in the Azerbaijan Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Rashed Alakbarov makes sculptures which only reveal their subject when their shadows are seen, rather like the work of Noble and Webster. He exhibited some very clever constructions and their shadows. I liked this one because it was slightly different – it didn’t rely on you seeing its shadow but you had to stand in just the right place to read the message hidden within the chaos of metal.
