LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
Farnoush Amini MRSS was born in Iran. She graduated from the Art Academy London in July 2019. Influenced by her memories from Iran including the revolution, suppression, eight years war with Iraq and women's lack of freedom, She extensively researches these subjects through documentary footage, articles or photos.
She looks beyond boundaries created by religious or political suppression to create her own language of temporality in her Installation and performance art practice.
By imbedding cultural or religious symbols, she tries to communicate a hidden message to the viewer and to overwhelm them with a sense of entrapment by taking them to the edge of their tolerance facing implied violence or death.
There is a presence of an action in her work. This could create anxiety of the unknown in the audience, something she has been carrying most of her life, as a result of spending years in fear of air raids and being warned or arrested by moral police.
Her material language encompasses human hair, fabric, metal, clay, ice, feather and ready-made objects, and using these she creates tensions and relationships between organic and non-organic matter. The existence of life and death in the organic material is what she is drawn to.
In 2016 She exhibited
at Espacio Gallery group exhibition in London. In 2017 she exhibited twice at
Espacio and Menier galleries group exhibitions in London. In 2018 she exhibited
at the Espacio gallery and she was also commissioned by Springfield Psychiatric
University Hospital in London.
In 2018 she was shortlisted and won the "People's Choice Award" by the Passion for Freedom Art Festival at the La Galleria Pall Mall and The Royal Opera Arcade Galleries in London. In 2019 she was shortlisted and won the Sheroes Revoluciones Art Prize by Lon-art Creative at the Ugly Duck London. In 2020 she was selected to exhibit at the Nauvele Vague gallery in Marbella, Spain.
Elected member of Royal Society of Sculptors 2020.
