Bio

Born in Tabriz - Azerbaijan, grew up in Tehran. I moved to Norway in 1986 where I currently live and work.

In my art I use documentaries in combination with performance as a method through which to examine the random moments that create meaning in life.

My works reflect my background as a freelance photojournalist and journalist, but have shifted in recent years into artistic arena and appear as video - or perfomance-based work
