Batool Showghi

Batool Showghi’s multidisciplinary approach to the artist’s book and her mixed media work involve photography, illustration, painting, and textiles. All of which are employed to explore themes of cultural heritage, memory, identity, and loss in very personal ways. Her work is concerned with the experience of women and the way in which this experience relates to cultural and religious boundaries as well as reflecting on the theme of turbulence, immigration, disintegration of the family and the experience of displacement. In response to the recent uprising of Iranian women, Batool has created a series of textile works around the theme of Struggle and Rise of Women.
