About

Soheila Sokhanvari is an Iranian-born artist whose multidisciplinary work weaves layers of political histories with strange, humorous and mysterious narratives.

Sokhanvari is interested in the use of metaphor to speak about inexpressible events, particularly with reference to Iran.

Magic realism and the use of metaphor in autocratic countries have historically enabled writers and artists to allow the meaning to lie between the lines; hence escaping the limitations of being pinned down. It is both a gesture of protection and an arena for exploration.
