Visions of Eternity
Visions of Eternity is an exhibition that explores the existential question of being in a time when complex narratives challenge us to reconcile historical contexts with our modern existence. Visions of Eternity brings together a selection of contemporary artists from Iranian decent at the forefront of social change working in media as diverse as painting, drawing, photography, animation, new media, textiles and installation.

Saghfi Digar
Saghfi Digar (Roof of Another) proposes a vision of a utopic future. Located amongst the trees, this handmade weaving is made by Tahereh Goodarzy and Atefeh Khas. Through this delicate, transitory and ephemeral site specific installation the artists focus on change as the potential for growth.
