PARTICIPANT / Farideh Lashai

  • Name Farideh Lashai
  • Country Iran

Throughout her distinguished and expansive career that spanned over five decades, Farideh Lashai  consistently experimented with diverse devices. While painting and visual arts were her primary practices, it was the lyricism that reigned as a defining characteristic to her works. Lashai applied animation in particular as a division that set apart the temporal and spatial layers of her artistic vision. Constantly changing between the imagined and the real, her painted works form a set for spectacles to be performed against–where humorous sarcastic stories are politicized, where love stories or historical narratives unfold–fading away as quickly as they appeared and leaving behind the silent, but charged paintings.
