Open studio presentation: The Ferris wheel turns when the wind blows - Sana Ghobbeh 17 & 18 November


Work in pro­gress: The Ferris wheel turns when the wind blows — Sana Ghobbeh

Sana Ghobbeh is an Iranian-born artist and art researcher based in Brussels. Her work focu­ses on the rela­ti­ons­hips bet­ween urban infra­struc­tu­re and the soci­o­po­li­ti­cal his­to­ry they car­ry within them. She draws from archi­ves, old pho­tos of the city, blue prints, maps, local tes­ti­mo­nies, etc. to then allow this data to be trans­for­med by the ongo­ing flow pas­sing through the infra­struc­tu­re’s spa­ce in eve­ry­day life. The result is a sto­ry-tel­ling per­for­man­ce that trans­mits the dis­co­ve­ries of small poe­tic coun­ter-acti­ons that nevert­he­less can sha­ke the sta­bi­li­ty of archi­tec­tu­ral ele­ments favou­ring oppression.

In The Ferris wheel turns when the wind blows’ Sana intro­du­ces us to the pri­va­te pro­per­ty of a his­to­ri­cal figu­re. This par­ti­cu­lar plot of land is loca­ted in the Evin neigh­bor­hood that stret­ches from the north­west of Tehran to the foot of the Alborz mountains.
