ARTIST STATEMENT: My individual work spans printing, photography, video and animation revolving around the poetics of the veil as well as the stories from my own country of origin. My work primarily relies on paper,from which I creates videos, collages, drawing, photography and painting.The manual process is seminal to my own language and identity as an Iranian woman;however,the topics I explores,namely the power,the violence, the identity straddling national borders and cultures, as well as the role of women in our contemporary world, raise questions that refer to a more universal way of thinking.
