About Mehnoush Modonpour

“Born in Tehran, Iran, as a woman, I have experienced revolution, immigration, war and different cultures in varying phases of my life.

Throughout these experiences my work has often gone outside the “traditional” boundaries of my culture. My work would seem to defy certain concepts that I have been taught to ‘obey’.

I have come to believe that ignorance is the source of human suffering. However, my work shows a break from my cultural traditions while also showing the consequences that comes of ignorance. With my personal life experiences and understandings of different cultures and religions, I also believe in human connection and equality despite differences in ethnicity, gender, religion and culture.

Therefore my work explores the relationship between human, its surrounding, and everything in between.”
