Wunder Gallery, Calgary, Canada, 2013
Lichen was an installation comprised of everyday life objects and video. The objects were wrapped in screen-printed canvas. The canvas is covered with personal and cultural elements such as Middle Eastern motifs, texts in Farsi (hand written and screen printed) and self-portraits (veiled and unveiled) which represent my identity as an Iranian woman. I wrapped over 150 pieces of my belongings in this fabric. This collection encompassed a variety of everyday items, from clothing and accessories to domestic object; such as shoes, sunglasses, chair, tables, silverware, cups, bottles, cans, painting brushes, a palette, clock, paint and glue containers (used for the same project).
