NOOSHIN FARHID
Nooshin Farhid produces video works whilst employing different subjects and
scenarios have a connecting thread, a commonality, namely there is a certain kind of
agitation, a restlessness and a deliberate  disjuncture that ruptures the familiar
trajectory of the traditional narrative. This agitation and an unwillingness to settle for
what is ‘on offer’ (this is the way things are) reflects upon the current state of things
socially, politically and ideologically.
