About

Mozhdeh born in the post-revolution era of Iran and grew up in the Iran-Iraq war. Her childhood sprouts under the shadow of conflict and her life shapes in the aftermath and chaos of the war. She left her homeland and live outside her native country for over a decade where she wedded and interweaved to a cross-cultural perceiving and being. This anew being, intercultural communication, crosslinguistic, diversity and paradoxes, deeply influenced and shaped her art practice. Her multidisciplinary works explore new-media in video art and installation in overlapping edges of conventional mediums such as; painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, etc. often addressing the theme of contradictions and conversion within a poetic rhythm, challenging the movement of surrealism and minimalism.
