Terrain – Tanaz Modabber
2012 Exhibition Previous location



Terrain is a performative installation inspired by the uncanny correlation of the natural and the artificial environment in Tehran. As the boundary between these environments, natural and artificial, has grown more ambiguous a new environment has been taking shape. This phenomenon is crystalized into a continuously shifting mesh landscape that is skewed in scale and formalized through the process of stitching. While exploring the visual characteristics and construction systems of the installation, special attention has been given to the experience that Modabber creates for the viewers of the work.

Tanaz Modabber was born in Tehran, Iran. She studied at University of Berkeley in California and graduated with a BA in Landscape Architecture and a MA in Architecture. She currently lives in Berlin where she creates site-specific installations, intimate studio artworks, and architectural works.
