Timo Nasseri: All Borrow Their Light

28 February - 28 April 2023 Gallery

Lawrie Shabibi presents All Borrow Their Light, the first solo exhibition of Berlin-based Timo Nasseri at the gallery. Offering a comprehensive glimpse into Nasseri's oeuvre, the exhibition comprises a carefully curated selection of paintings and sculptures from various stages of the artist’s practice that contemplate concepts of mathematical and geometric thought models. 


Timo Nasseri was born in Berlin in 1972 to a German mother and an Iranian father. He received his diploma in photography from the Lette-Verein, Berlin in 1997. Nasseri began his artistic career as a photographer before making the transition to sculptor in 2004. After travelling to Iran with his father he started to explore the relationship of geometry and Islamic architecture. Combining Islamic and Western cultural heritages, his work is inspired as much by specific memories and religious references as by universal archetypes described by mathematics and language, and the inner truths of form and rhythm.
