Surfaces + Solids, Nazgol Ansarinia

Installation view at Green Art Gallery, Dubai, 2015

The post-revolution economic recovery in Iran has led to a flurry of new construction in Tehran, with older buildings being demolished and replaced by larger, more ostentatious structures across the city. At the same time, as the city becomes dense, there is a growing nostalgia for rural life and traditional Persian architecture, which is reflected in quirky ways in the urban landscape.

Since returning to Tehran a decade ago, after doing her graduation in the UK and obtaining a Masters degree in the US, Nazgol Ansarinia has observed with keen interest the rapid changes happening in the city. In her first solo exhibition in Dubai, "Surfaces + Solids", the Abraaj Art Prize winner explores the changing economic and social fabric of the city through a variety of innovative artworks.
