Anahita Norouzi Commented Visit of the Exhibition
Artist Anahita Norouzi talks about her practice and explains her process in a commented walk-through of her exhibition Systema Naturae, on view through March 11, 2023.
Anahita Norouzi is a multidisciplinary artist, originally from Tehran and active in Montreal since 2015. She holds advanced degrees in Fine Arts and French Literature from Concordia University in Montreal. Her research explores notions of displacement, memory and identity from a psycho-historical point of view.
Norouzi excavates historical narratives in order to consider the global impact of colonialism and how it permeates contemporary culture. Instigated by marginalized or forgotten histories, her work is articulated across a range of materials and mediums including sculpture, installation, photography, video, and performance.
Norouzi has taken part in several individual and collective exhibitions. She is the recipient of the Grantham Foundation Award, the Liz Crockford Artist Fund Award, the Vermont Studio Center Merit, and a finalist for the Magic of Persia Contemporary Art Prize for pieces shown at the Royal College of Art in London and in Dubai.
