Sanaz Sohrabi’s (Tehran.1988) studio practice intertwines and crosses paths with research and acts of gatherings, rendering them as a coalesce of theoretical inquiry and practice, often inseparable from one another. Working with experimental moving image, installation and objects, Sohrabi looks at visual traces, acts of view­er­ship and their rec­i­p­ro­cal dis/reap­pear­ances to in­ves­ti­gate the im­per­ma­nence and mal­leabil­ity of archival records and his­tor­i­cal nar­ra­tives.
