Farnoush Amini

Farnoush Amini was born in Iran. Her work has been influenced by Iran’s revolution, war, religion and political situation. Her practice moves between sculpture, installation and performance art. She looks beyond boundaries created by cultural, religious and political suppression by referring to symbols or customs related to her cultural upbringing. Using her art practice to question ingrained political ideology and cultural beliefs she explores the connection between organic and non-organic matter such as human hair, fabric, metal, feather, ice, sound or readymade objects to create her own language of temporality and presence.
