Comunicato stampa

solo exhibitions Pools and Voids by Nazgol Ansarinia and Architectures of Life by Jitka Hanzlová, on view from today, February 4, 2021.
The two artists, of different generations and backgrounds, meet in their attention to the nuances of architecture. Nazgol Ansarinia's investigation focuses on memories, desires and peculiar aspects that remain for decades in the buildings of the city of Tehran, while Jitka Hanzlová's gaze captures and impresses the architectures, organic and inorganic, underlying life


The sculptures and video work that make up Pools and Voids arise from the recent observation that Nazgol Ansarinia (Tehran, 1979) dedicated to the numerous private pools built in the Iranian capital during the 1960s and then left unused as a consequence of the Iranian Revolution from 1979 onwards. This new body of work defines a sort of inversion of the issues on which, in recent years, Ansarinia has reasoned. Her analysis has shifted from the rapid development of the built, and therefore of the demolished, to what remains: the memory of what is left, still present but abandoned, shows a collective desire from the past that still survives in a crystallized form.
Over the past 30 years, Jitka Hanzlová (Náchod, 1958) has depicted, image after image, portraits of a world in which subjects exist in a non-hierarchical composition: people, nature, animals, and architecture exist in a unity of sense, in all their specificity and contradictions. In each of her series, Hanzlová composes her vision in sequences: in Architectures of Life she collects images from a variety of them, allowing the self-evident constellation of relations to emerge. In addition to historical series such as Rokytník (1990 — 1994), Jitka Hanzlová presents WATER (2013 — 2019), a body of work which is still evolving.
