Born and raised in Tehran, Iran, and living and working in San Francisco, Taraneh Hemami engages in diverse strategies including installation, object and media productions, collective and participatory projects to explore themes of displacement, preservation and representation. Examining the careful crafting of images as propagated for power and political gain, Hemami's recent handcrafted replications of historical archives serve as commemoratives to events, places and people, while commenting on tools of manipulation and persuasion used across nations and histories. Part of the exhibition "Mashrabiya: The Art of Looking Back."
