WANDERING IMAGE - ARTIST TALK - FARKHONEH SHAHROUDI / VISUAL ARTIST – Vortrag
Spatial Poetry by Alessandra Tempesti
Farkhondeh Shahroudi's main inspirations for her artistic research include poetry.
This is something she also writes, both in Farsi and in German, as she has lived in Germany for over twenty years, since leaving Iran in 1990. In her work, the language of poetry becomes sculptural, like her sculptures made of hand-stitched fabric. Whether it's automatic writing deliberately slowed down by the choice to use her left hand in her work on paper, or Persian letters, just as slow because they are hand-stitched and illegible due to the overlapping of the graphic signs, she seeks to create, with language, a space of attraction for images, without any distinction between the bi-dimensionality of the poetic text and the tri-dimensionality of the sculpture.
