Growing up in Iran, the land of literature, poetry, and metaphors, nurtured my special connection to words and their magical ability in creating different realities.

The ruptures of migration led me to embrace the revolutionary attributes of storytelling and transformed my life into a self-exploration story, a reconciliation poem.

My artistic practice is an honest reflection of my existential and sensual experience of being in the world: A conjunction of the different worlds that I have lived, loved, and feared.

The complexity and simplicity of existence, absence, and presence of different forms of life, befriending conflicts and traversing the endless metamorphic and therapeutic powers of arts and the artistic process are the core of my art-based research.
