Curated by Art on a Postcard
Yasmin - Shaghayegh- Noorbakhsh is a Persian-British multidisciplinary artist living in London. Her practice examines the notion of veracity. She is particularly interested in how our understanding of events can be affected by media bias, personal and cultural projection, assumption, and censorship. Her work is inspired by personal and collective social and cultural beliefs and events. It depicts erasure of events and objects and how they can lose their complexity and origin when looked at through certain construct or agenda. She borrows cultural and historical signifiers and fuses them with elements of contemporary practice to create a strong sense of friction and collision.
As a female artist and a member of the Iranian diaspora, Yasmin’s practice is infused with liminal space experiences and hybrid identity and its associated uncertainty. There is a constant questioning at the core of her practice.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
She explores the relationship between pattern and chaos and how they overlap and intersect. Her multifaceted layers, interweaving diverse motifs and complex surfaces, depict the state of constantly existing between two spaces; between the known and unknown; the pleasant, and unpleasant; the West and the East and how sometimes these intersect and become intertwined.
