For the inquisitive German-Iranian photographer-turned-sculptor Timo Nasseri, the concept of infinity has held a dominant presence in his body of sculptural and illustrative works. The Sfeir-Semler Gallery artist’s bedazzling, small and large drawings demonstrate his fascination with the intricacies of mathematics, geometry, constellations, and Islamic ornamentation. Recipient of Art Dubai’s Abraaj Group Art Prize in 2011, Nasseri has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Berlin, New York, Paris, Dubai, Tehran, and New Delhi.
Art Dubai Portraits is a film series that provides a short perspective into the lives and workspaces of artists that are connected to the fair through its programming or participating galleries. The Art Dubai Portraits are produced in collaboration with Forward James Filmmakers.
