Drawing | Cardboard, Indian Ink | 12 Parts | 150 x 280 cm. | 2011
Known City consists of 12 various drawing fragments. Half of the drawings are sketches from diverse locations in Tehran, and the other half were drawn in Bonn. The logical sequence of the drawings was disturbed, and the final composition conveys a warped perspective. The resulting composition is meant to simulate a view of displacement.
Known City investigates the relationship of physical space and physical architecture of a city in relation to one’s singular viewpoint.
