TEHRAN, YJC.-- Veteran artist Aidin Aghdashlu plans to write and publish his memoirs in Toronto, Canada.
Aghdashlu will be leaving Iran to see his son, who is living in Toronto for Noruz, the Iranian New Year beginning on March 21, the Persian service of ISNA reported on Monday.
"People always take their memoirs with them from where they live to where they travel. I have many memoirs from Iran that I will take with me on this journey,” Aghdashlu said.
"The days I was alone in Iran had their own beauty, but when this loneliness lasted longer than expected, it turned into heartache so I got used to it, but now, I no longer wish to be alone,” he added.
He also said that while being alone is good most of the time, extended periods of it are not recommended especially when one becomes older.
Aghdashlu’s daughter also lives in London and he also has also plans to visit her too.
"Memories of Destruction”, was a retrospective of Aghdahslu, which was held in Tehran’s Asar Gallery in November, covering 40 years of his career.
"These mental murmurs are genuine for me. I collect these soft little murmurs and show them in an opera, I call this exhibit of mine my opera,” Aghdashlu had said in a press conference during his exhibit.
"Neither objects nor actions have ever been able to prevent me from murmuring,” Aghdashlu had said.
