Nima Sagharchi Projects and the IHF Future Patrons present "Utopia", an exhibition of works by Iranian contemporary artist, Ghazaleh Avarzamani.

"Utopia" showcases Ghazaleh's Rococo themed needlepoint embroideries which are mixed with contemporary Iranian imagery. These are inspired by the kitsch interpretations of Goblin tapestries. The tapestries are embroidered by hand, tying in with Ghazaleh's belief that the revival of skilled craft is central to the artistic process.

Also on display will be Ghazaleh's installation "Eastern Delight" which presents her edition of baroque-style porcelain figurines mounted on fragments of Persian carpet.
