Nazgol Ansarinia: The Room Becomes a Street
Curated by Aram Moshayedi
Argo Factory, Pejman Foundation
10 January - 10 April 2020
Pleased to announce Nazgol Ansarinia's solo exhibition in Iran at Argo Factory, a non-profit cultural institution, housed in a former drink manufacturing factory in Tehran. Argo Factory is part of Pejman Foundation's constellation of sites. Spread over 3 floors, the exhibition includes Ansarinia's key works from the last 15 years in addition to a newly commissioned large scale installation.
Argo Factory was one of the major drink manufacturing factories in Iran during the 1960s and 1970s. Its construction dates back to early 1920s as one of the first industrial factories in Iran. In spite of its unique architectural features – high smokestacks and strategic geographical position at the heart of the city – the factory was abandoned for almost four decades. In 2016, Pejman Foundation acquired and reconstructed the Argo Factory and turned into one of its multiple sites.
