  • Three women, Three destinies, Sweden, 2015

    I tried to keep on working with metal work in Sweden too. In February 2015 I attend in a group exhibition in Malmo at the Gynning studio which are telling Three Iranian girls their stories., with three different styles of metal work, paintings and ceramics. When I came to sweden from Iran ,I hade a dialectic between my inspration from memories of the world left behind and the day to day struggles of learning the ropes in the new society and in the seeking inspration. Separate from any resemblance.
