Tara Fatehi Irani

Tara Fatehi Irani is a multidisciplinary artist, writer and performance maker working with mistranslated memories and unattended archives. Her work is primarily concerned with the ephemeral interactions between memories, words and sites. The output of her practice ranges between performance (site-responsive, body-based, participatory or audio-visual), videos, sound recordings, installations, writings and anything in-between that can be called ‘live’.

She is a doctoral researcher at the University of Roehampton and the Live Art Development Agency currently working on Mishandled Archive: a year-long series of daily micro-performances using photography, dance and text to disseminate, question and re-archive sociopolitically charged family histories from Iran.
