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 to another culture, different language, a new living. In this new being, she was a newcomer who needed to identify unknowns and pin herself on this new map of the existence. All these experiences, diversity and paradoxes, deeply influenced and shaped her perception that grew into her form of art. She works in a diverse range of media, including painting, photography, installation, sculpture, works on paper, motion art, etc, often addressing the theme of contradictions and conversion within a poetic rhythm, challenging the movement of surrealism and minimalism, her study of phenomenology form in the corporeality of mind in acts of making art.
