Azadeh Yavari

Azadeh Yavari shows us her peaceful childhood family home surrounded by mountains; with its rooms, its quiet corners, its terraces, its windows, its curtains with arabesque patterns and its beautiful Persian garden. Marked by tragic periods of her country; war and revolution, Azadeh Yavari imagines a different space and time in her artistic work. Colors and objects change, their perspectives evolve: the borders between the inside and the outside, the shadow and the light, the agitated day and the calm night, the manifest and the hidden fade. However, it keeps lines, thresholds, fabrics, curtains more or less light, in order to distinguish, and, especially, to protect; to veil and repress reality in the country where the veil is imposed. "A quest for peace and serenity against violence and social pressure".
