I am an interdisciplinary visual artist born and educated in Tehran, Iran. As a member of the Iranian Diaspora, identity and social discourse are important conceptual anchors in my practice. During the past two decades, I have explored themes related to power, the intersection of personal and collective memory, relocation, and fragility through various bodies of work. Both my methods and material choices are project-oriented. I have used my body, and juxtaposed repurposed wood, Plaster, Astroturf, found objects, and precious metals like bronze in my sculptures. My recent mixed-media sculptures draw heavily from social and political events in my country.
