Welcome to a screening and talk with Elham Rokni. In her drawings and video installations she repeatedly constructs and deconstructs patterns, colors, and shapes that have to do with her childhood memories and family album from Tehran. Central to her ongoing exploration of immigrants past is the question of how cultural fragments such as images, music, poetry and folktales compose memories, emotions, and personality. Her work explores an intricate, multifaceted reality, challenging the boundaries of the existing orders, physicals as well as politics.
Elham Rokni was born in Tehran just after the Islamic Revolution. She grew up in Tehran and immigrated to Israel at the age of nine. Today she lives and works in Tel-Aviv. She is a graduate of Bezalel Academy’s BFA (2007) and MFA (2010) programmes and is a professor at the Bezalel Academy art department since 2013. Elham Rokni is currently a grant holder at Iaspis in Stockholm.
