‘Memento’ is a series of work, part of an ongoing project based on the background of my father, who lived in the UK’s boarding schools as an Iranian boy since the age of three. It concentrates on the period of his life, when he was being raised as a British boy far from his family and his original Iranian background. The collected archive of photographs represents the two different cultural backgrounds he was experiencing while growing up as a child. This project brings together the contradictory values, ideas and beliefs that have shaped the persona and identity of my father as a result of being raised in two completely different cultures. ‘Photo Weavings’ is one part of the 'Memento' series in which two photographs that represent the different upbringings are shredded and weaved together. With the shredding of the images I re-create the fragmentation of a memory. The two photographs are then combined as a weaving. This final abstracted image can be interpreted as a recall of his unconscious being formed as a result of his life experiences between an Eastern and a Western society.

I am an Iran born artist based in London. My work is mainly based on weaving archival photographs together with a focus on the wider concepts of memory and cultural identity. I explore how memory of our experiences can contribute to our perceived identities. I apply the interwoven images to birch plywood surfaces that are then sanded and varnished, resulting in a three-dimensional object. Weaving has become synonymous with my practice, becoming a motif within my work. The process of physically manipulating portraits allows me to explore the relationship between form, colour and surface to illustrate my ideas on memory. I attempt to describe the memories of people and the weavings are a pictorial description of the memory process. Photography for me is the documentation of who we are, what we do; a record of a moment in time. While the photographic medium is the starting point of my practice, I experiment with image manipulation to better illustrate my ideas concerning cross-cultural perspectives on identity.
