Azadeh Pirazimian is an Iranian-Canadian multidisciplinary artist, art instructor based in Toronto and a former lecturer from Iran.
Through her practice, she actively investigates prevailing power structures, social norms and conventions while focusing on belonging, womanhood and everyday resistances. Her interests are a matter of representation, collaboration as practice, feminist politics and intersectionality. She aims to initiate methods within her art practice to create space for dialogue. Azadeh’s artistic approach combines different disciplines, including photography, video, performance art, painting and illustration, while her methodology is consistent.
Over the years, her works have been showcased at several exhibitions in Iran, Canada and the Netherlands. In her most current body of works, “I have Become Red” she offers a critical view of a socio-political and cultural issue over “Being Silenced” either by one’s self or society.
