Ordinary Grief
05/2022 05/22

In her solo exhibition Ordinary Grief, Parisa Azadi searches for her identity, which oscillates between memories of traumatic events in Iran and racist resentments in Canada. She uses photography to capture her personal agony and the collective uncertainty of people in Iran. The intimacy of everyday scenes — like looking out a window or a wedding — showcases the barrenness of the landscape and people's living conditions. The leaflet includes a text by Porochista Khakpour and Mahmoud Darwish, as well as a photograph by Azadi, which becomes a poster for all visitors.
