Farkhondeh Shahroudi

Wave Anti-Flag

July 14, 6.00 pm

Monopteros, English Garden

Farkhondeh Shahroudi was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1962. She left her country in 1990 and found political asylum in Germany. She currently lives and works in Berlin. Her installations and interactive performances symbolise the conditions far from her homeland. The materials used in her works, such as fabrics, human hair and leather, are in dialogue with poetry, which the artist writes in German and Farsi. Her flags, which are created in collaboration with the audience, show a special form of expression. The flags, supported by a simple iron frame, are in fact anti-flags: Flags that are devoid of any ideology and do not symbolise any country.
In her performance, Farkhondeh Shahroudi opens the view to her very personal, timeless and lyrical world, in which she interweaves past and present, in which the social and the individual, the private and the political spheres merge.
