Nazgol Ansarinia (born 1979 in Tehran) examines the systems and networks that underpin her daily life such as everyday objects, routines, events and experiences. Her practice reflects upon tensions between private worlds and the wider socioeconomic realm, and how local iterations of a culture might act as a site for the hopes and fears of those living in a (faltering) globalized world. Her recent projects, ranging across sculpture, installation, drawing, and video, represent ways of understanding the role of architecture in delineating interior and exterior spaces and private and public spheres. 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. Her work is shown internationally.
