   Reading 1 min

Green Art Gallery is holding Tehran-born artist Nazgol Ansarinia’s exhibition “Lakes Drying, Tides Rising” until May 7th, 2022. It is the artist’s third solo exhibition at the gallery.

Ansarinia’s works are primarily observational and technical, showcasing the issues that are critical for today’s cities and the people living in them. The exhibition “Lakes Drying, Tides Rising” is a reference to Iran’s recent water crisis and the resulting urban landscape in order to show the collective desires of a particular time.

Nazgol Ansarinia’s art investigates structures and systems of everyday life such as objects, routines, events and experiences and the relationship they form to a larger social context. The artist analyses how tensions between private worlds and the broader socioeconomic realm might act as a site for the hopes and fears of those living in a globalised world. 

During her career, the artist has used various media: video, 3D printed models, sculpture, drawing. She is interested in various subjects such as security policy, control and discipline, memories associated with lived spaces, urban development in Tehran, patterns of Persian carpets and mirror mosaics. 

Nazgol Ansarinia is an Iranian artist born in Tehran. She holds a BA Degree from the London College of Communication and an MFA degree from the California College of the Arts. Her works are included in the collections of the Queensland Art Gallery, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Tate Gallery and the British Museum.
