Azadeh Pirazimian

Multidisciplinary Artist

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.
