Something Is Missing

Central to my practice is the act of collage, with a wide variety of materials from found objects, mirror, mail stamps, beads to artificial eyelashes, fishnets, and fur. I chose the materials in my immediate environment unintentionally. After compiling a body of work, each material evokes memories, feelings and carrying meaning for me personally. I believe the act of collage is the construction of new worlds and identities. I adapted this technique to continuously recast that violence by shifting symbols into same-sex tenderness scenes, providing a rare glimpse into the paradoxical softness of roughness. These collages are composed mainly of ordinary figures and objects to emphasize the hidden lingering melancholy insights resulting from gender traumas in all society levels. Innumerable groups and individuals suffered from sexual, gender, and bodily diversity discrimination today and over the centuries, especially in the Middle East and Iran.
