Conceptual installations of artist Ebrahim Eskandari is on view at an exhibition that opened on August 10 at Aaran Art Gallery.

Eskandari is preoccupied with the forgotten and vanishing urban elements, such as post boxes, orange public telephone booths, double-decker buses, and the popular national car Peykan. He has brought them all to his exhibit.

Peykan was a popular car in Iran from the late 1960s to mid 1990s and was seen all across cities, towns and villages. At the time owning and riding a Peykan was classy and many wished to have one.
