Tirdad Hashemi

Tirdad Hashemi was born in 1991 in Teheran, Iran. She lives and works between Paris, Teheran and Berlin.

Whether on paper or canvas, often in small formats and depending on the means at hand, people agitate, congregate and break out. Sometimes they seem to free themselves from all constraints and conventions, and sometimes they suffocate on our rules of decorum, finally vomiting all over our well-meaning societies.

In her own words, the artist may not be “an activist that dwells in the streets, but an activist with the lifestyle [she has] chosen”. Hashemi will never feel free from her home country, Iran, but somehow, she will remain a foreigner, a stranger wherever she goes.Art is her only necessity, her true home.The only place she can express fully.The only place where she can be at the same time herself and others, because in this space, everything is still possible.

“Painting, in my working process, always starts from a story and continues like a dream. Everything is always possible in sleep.” Tirdad Hashemi
