Ghazaleh Avarzamani’s practice examines the role of experience, memory, psychology, modern rationality and educational methodologies in the construction of knowledge. Considering a range of spaces, structures and devices for interactivity, self-development and play, her work questions the contextual biases that shape meanings and values. Exploring these concerns in relation to growth and erasure, Avarzamani aims to expose the paradoxical realities beneath the surface of society. Avarzamani was trained in painting at Azad Art University (Tehran) and holds a Master of Fine Arts from Central Saint Martins (London, UK). Recent exhibitions have been presented at Frieze Sculpture, Asia House, Light Gallery (all London, UK); Koffler Gallery (Toronto); and Ab-Anbar Gallery (Tehran). Recent group exhibitions include Bocconi Art Gallery (Milan); Vestfossen Kunstlaboratorium Museum; and Project Gallery (Toronto), among others. Avarzamani has participated in various international residencies including SOMA (Mexico City) and Via Firini (Milan), and was the 2013 recipient of the Red Mansion Art Prize.
