Rana Dehghan Iranian, b. 1986

Rana Dehghan (b. 1986, Tehran, Iran) is a sculptor and painter living and working in Tehran. She received her BA in Painting from Azad University of Tehran (2013).
The art of Rana Dehghan investigates the made-up and the real after "the death of objects". Objects fall out of their "product" status after some time to become "matter" again. She removes and alters objects from the "common world of images" to use them as tools for self-expression. Despite alterations, deformations and augmentations, these objects stay connected to their origins through clues left by the artist and they defy their normal state as much as they defy definitions since they are outside of their intended state of purpose.
Rana Dehghan has held three solo shows and participated in a number of group exhibitions, including Asia Art Week (Dubai, 2019), “Opening” (Abi Gallery, 2016), “Punishment” (Delgosha Gallery, 2017), and “Eat My Fear, Chew My Name” (Delgosha Gallery, 2018).
