Demolishing Buildings, Buying Waste

Through drawings, collages, sculptures, murals and works in textile, Iranian artist Nazgol Ansarinia draws a portrait of everyday life in her native city of Tehran, and of her own position within that context. She grows with a city that now counts almost 14 million residents and whose face is rapidly changing. As capitalism’s sway over contemporary Iranian society grows ever more pervasive, there is housing shortages, the real estate market booms, houses make way for towering new apartment buildings and shopping malls, which results in a vicious paradoxical cycle of construction and deconstruction.



Green Art Gallery has been active in the region for nearly four decades. Starting in the late 1980’s in Homs, Syria the gallery opened in Dubai in 1995 with a programme focused on Arab Modernism. Green Art Gallery re-launched in 2010 as a contemporary art space with a programme featuring a multi-generational mix of artists whose practices are rigourously researched, idea-led, and representative of our current moment.
