Tirdad Hashemi

Tirdad Hashemi est né·e en 1991 à Téhéran, en Iran. Iels vivent et travaillent entre Paris, Téhéran et Berlin.

Sur du papier, souvent de petits formats et selon les moyens du bord, des êtres s’agitent, se rencontrent et se séparent. Parfois iels semblent se libérer de toutes contraintes et conventions ; parfois iels suffoquent de nos règles de bienséance et vomissent nos sociétés bien pensantes.

Tirdad Hashemi n’est pas activiste à combattre dans la rue, mais le choix de son style de vie, de ses références identitaires et de sa sexualité est politique. De son pays, l’Iran, iels ne se sentiront jamais libre, mais quelque part iels se sentent étrangerères où qu’iels aillent. L’art est sa seule nécessité, sa seule maison. Le seul endroit où iels peuvent s’exprimer. Ou l’on iels peuvent être eux et appartenir à un groupe d’individus en même temps, car tout y est encore possible.

“La peinture, dans mon travail, part toujours d’une histoire et se poursuit comme un rêve. Tout est toujours possible dans le sommeil.” Tirdad Hashemi
