Solo exhibition of new work by Iranian born artist Nazanin Moradi

About

PARADISE FOUND IN LANCASTER

An Iranian-born artist has found her paradise in Lancaster.

Nazanin Moradi will be presenting Pairidaeza at the city’s King Street Studios from June 15-July 27.

Pairidaeza is the old Persian word for an ‘other space’ and the exhibition focuses on openness, tolerance and dialogue, subjects of significance to Nazanin who was born in Iran during the Eighties  where she attended calligraphy and painting school aged just six.

“The experience had a decisive impact on my development afterwards,” said Nazanin who left Iran  in 2006 to join family in Dubai and study there.

Following a serious car accident which had left her in a coma, Nazanin moved to London where she achieved an MA in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2016. She has exhibited in the UK, France, Croatia, America, Iran and the United Arab Emirates.

Nazanin’s work was first displayed at King Street Studios last year as part of the Something Called Home  show but Pairidaeza will be her first solo exhibition in the city.

Nazanin’s work combines costume making, performance, painting, printmaking and digital collage.

Her inspiration for Pairidaeza is the poem I Feel Sorry For The Garden by feminist poet Forough Farrokhzad which not only considers women’s freedom but also a wish for freedom of expression.

As visitors enter the exhibition via a spiral staircase, they will see textiles hanging from the ceiling. “I wanted to focus on creating spaces floating either in the 3D sculpture or 2D oil paintings, populated only by abstracted body parts and patterns,” Nazanin explained.

King Street Studios are open on Fridays and Saturdays from 11am-5.30pm or by appointment by ringing 07743238663. For more information, visit www.kingstreetstudios.art
