Khobs & Chai (2022)
Through a conversation with my grandmother, I explore the question: what kind of life lessons do elders and motherly-figures teach us?
When I was younger, my grandmother often shared stories of living through the fall of the monarchy in Iraq, the Iran-Iraq war and the Gulf war. Despite experiencing difficult and horrifying events, her spirit has always been positive and warm. I tried to channel some of her vibrant soul through the medium of stop-motion.
Thank you to the Asian Arts and Culture Trust Organization and TIFF Bell Lightbox for your generous support. I am so honoured to be part of this year’s Conversation with Elder’s Exhibition alongside many other talented artists.
