Ala Ebtekar - Nowheresville \ 'nä-kōja,-abäd \
The Third Line is pleased to open its Spring 2015 program with Ala Ebtekar’s Nowheresville \ 'nä-kōja,-abäd \ . Working with ideas of the celestial, home to planetary and spiritual configurations that have fascinated humanity since the beginning of time, the artist combines early 12th Century traditions of Persian cosmic philosophy with modern-day scientific imaging of the heavens. His explorations over the years, into the union of both spectrums, and a search for the portals into imagined futures, culminate in this mystical homage to Light.
