Neda Razavipour’s practice connects everyday life events with her works. She meets the challenges embedded in her society and personal life, and attempts to change the role of the viewer from ordinary spectator to active participant using a variety of media. Without appealing to direct language, she poses questions and encourages the viewer to interact with/react to her work to extend and complete its meaning.
In many of her works, Razavipour redistributes fragments: Broken pieces, drawings, photographs, moving images, etc. to question the making of the world through the language of objects and ideas. She plays with concepts related to daily life, intimate experiences, and social issues. For her, every facet of life is imbued with curiosity and deserves articulation. She is deeply committed to explore the private and societal life of women, while not being trapped in stereotypical representational approaches and self-exotification.
Razavipour has co-founded several collectives in Iran in a range of activities from an experimental theatre company (Leeve) to an artist collective space (Jalleh & Movazi), from an artist health support network (Karestan) to an urban environmental NGO (Nafas).
Born in 1969 in Tehran, Iran, Neda Razavipour graduated in Fine Arts from the University Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne and in Stage/Space Design from ENSAD, Paris. From 2001 to the present, her works have appeared in numerous exhibitions throughout the world.
