In her practice, Tannaz Farsi is invested in alternative methods of remembering and recording to prolong the presence of easily erased moments that arise from politically motivated conflict. Central to the work is the notion of fragmentation, structural blindness and individual agency. She works with materials and forms that are easily recognizable, using our familiarity to tease out a common language that is at once analytical and physical and allows for a complexity of meaning to develop through arrangement, organization and form. The work is project based and her studio practice crosses a range of mediums such as sculpture, photography, drawing, printmaking, and digital media. As an artist, she is interested in the friction that is instigated within the mixing of these conventions—whether it is an aesthetic structure that informs a political commentary or an attempt to bring an irrational idea or an idea that does not have definitive form into a physical structure.

Her work for the Portland2016 Biennial is also on display in The Dalles at the Morin Print Building. More at portlandbiennial.org
