"Flooring Gods", the first solo exhibition of the artist, presents around 40 recent works of the anonymous Tehran-based stencil artist Nafir and is to date the most ambitious solo show of the artist.

Son of a carpet merchant in the old bazaar of Tehran, the choice of this woven surface to express his ideas is very much linked to his personal history and a deep love for his country and regional traditions (as Nafir puts it, "the history of Iran is not written, it is woven"), albeit used in an iconoclastic way.

Nafir's stencils are unique pieces, not only because of the materials used but the stencils are rarely used twice in his indoor work. The women portrayed are mainly from his circle of friends: models, photographers, artists, dancers, performers, musicians and DJs who stand up for freedom, unafraid of consequences... and represent the Iranian youth, disillusioned and hopeful."

Free entrance.

After the visit there is a bit time to have a drink.
