Yosra Mojtahedi

Born in 1986 in Téhéran (Iran)

I obtained an MA in fine arts, and then a degree in beaux-arts when I settled in France. Le voyage... ce mystère leafs through my sketchbook. Coming from a country where the body is a taboo subject and its representation forbidden, my work reacts by being sensual and sensory, tactile and olfactory, sometimes touching on eroticism and femininity. It is steeped in a surrealist, obscurantist atmosphere. A space free of places and times, where objects and elements are symbolic: flowers, stones, umbilical cords, organs, in a twilight penumbra. If anything has oriented my work, it is surely Iranian censorship.
