Guided tour and curatorial talk: “Dyslexia” by Ghazel

My work has obsessively questioned uprootedness, roots, contemporary migrations, belonging, hybridity, movement and the effects of war. World maps are metaphors for my more than 30 years of an „in transit“ state, between several languages and roots. I use Iranian world maps which I de-politicize, deconstruct and reconstruct; making new geographies. My concern has been to use real world maps and to underline manmade disasters such as wars, pollution and corruption.



Ghazel was born in 1966 in Tehran, Iran. She lives and works in Paris and Tehran. She participated in various international Biennals, like 50. Biennale de Venezia (2003), 3. Biennal of Tirana (2005), 15. Biennal of Sydney (2006) and 7. Sharjah Biennal (2005). She obtained a Diploma in Visual Arts from Ecole de Beaux Arts de Nîmes (1992) and a BA in Cinematographic Studies from Université Paul Valery, Montpellier (1992).
