I’m an Iranian origin ceramic artist based currently in Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal. My work generally examines the interplay of subjects related to time, memory, and cultural identity. I follow two parallel approaches in my ceramic work. The first one involves my explorations in forms and glazes which could either become functional works or sculptural objects. In the other approach, I investigate the relationship between the archived past and a continual and infinite process of being. The coexistence of multiple modernities related to different civilizations. Most specifically, as an Iranian diaspora, a great part of my work is inspired by the Persian cultural heritage. The archeological approach in my installations allows me to capture something of an invisible in an artifact, finding surprising narratives, and putting together disparate parts of a puzzle. By exploring the innumerable qualities of clay and glazes my practice examines how objects are the repository of cultural memory.
I’m a graduate of ceramics from Concordia University (BFA in Ceramics, 2020).
