We are pleased to announce that Iranian artist Nazgol Ansarinia is now represented by Green Art Gallery. Nazgol Ansarinia is a multimedia artist whose work examines the systems and networks that underpin her daily life such as everyday objects, routines, events and experiences, and the relationship they form to a larger social context. Characterized by an emphasis on research her work engages with subjects as diverse as automated telephone systems, American security policy, memories associated with a family house, and the patterns of Persian carpets. Ansarinia often seeks to reveal the ‘inner workings of a social system’ by taking its components apart and putting them together again, to uncover assumptions, connections and underlying rules of engagement.
Select exhibitions include: Longing Persia, Exchange and reception of art in Persia and Europe in the 17th Century & Contemporary Art from Tehran, Museum Rietberg, Zurich (upcoming 2013); Safar/Voyage at The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver (2013); When Attitudes Became Form Become Attitudes at the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (2012, 2013); A Permanent Record For Future Investigation, Green Art Gallery, Dubai (2012) and Interior Renovations, Tehran, 2010, Green Cardamom, London (2011). Nazgol Ansarinia took part in the 10th & 12th Istanbul Biennial and was a recipient of the 2009 Abraaj Capital Art Prize.
Her work is included in the collections of the British Museum and Tate Modern, London; Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and Devi Art Foundation, Delhi. She lives and works in Tehran, Iran.
