Nazgol Ansarinia NSS book series, 2008

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.

Born in 1979 in Tehran, Nazgol Ansarinia graduated from the London College of Communication in 2001 before taking a Master of Fine Arts at the California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco in 2003.
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.
