In the ground-floor gallery one’s attention is immediately drawn to The Mechanisms of Growth, Demolishing Buildings, Buying Waste, 2017, by Nazgol Ansarinia. What appear to be pallets of rubble are in fact handmade plaster and glue ‘bricks’, based on a 3-D printed mould, which replicate fragments of a building, such as that being demolished in the accompanying videos. In Tehran, the artist’s hometown, ‘real-estate anarchists’ have in recent decades extensively demolished and rebuilt the once-familiar townscape. Ansarinia records in detail the ruthless destruction and de-personalised new development that is rampant throughout the city.
