Press Release

LISTE

For our Liste 2019 presentation we were inspired by the readings of “Invisible Cities” a seminal book by the Italian writer Italo Calvino in 1972; a travelogue to places that do not exist. Through the works of Nazgol Ansarinia ( b. 1979, lives and work in Tehran), Hera Büyüktaşçıyan ( b. 1984, lives and works in Istanbul) and Maryam Hoseini ( b. 1988, lives and works in New York), the presentation is a vivid recollection of cites and places, their curiosities and their social order. From Ansarinia’s miniature ceramic brick sculptures to Büyüktaşçıyan's, drawings and bronze “thread” sculptures, and Hoseini’s small-scale works of ink, acrylic, and pencil on panel, we aim to portray what Polo says when describing the city of Tamara: “the eye does not see things but images of things that mean other things.”
