You are the love and I am the city

Through my artistic practice, I aim to explore the relationship between body (exclusively female body), psyche and the geographical and cultural context that these two live in, and to investigate the influence of native and adopted experiences on one’s psyche and performance of self. I use my artistic process to stitch pieces of memories of my own background and experiences as an immigrant woman to promote an encounter between past and present, old and new and to minor the nebulousness of the diaspora life. The Farsi texts help me visualise experiences like love, intimacy, memory, nostalgia, loss and an instable identity. My work is a personal response to the worlds and stories that I have been exposed to, creating a collage of contrasting memorabilia and uncertain emotions. My feminine bodies perform as a stage or a monument to hold this collage and unify its contradicting elements.
