BAHAR BEHBAHANI

Through her lyrical videos, Behbahani stages a contemporary cultural critique by layering and juxtaposing allusions to past and present socio-political circumstances with a language that she draws from her experience as

a painter. She carefully choreographs each frame—with attention to detail in selecting the palette—composing

a scenario with visual language that abstracts her relationships with people and poetry, pop culture

and politics. By setting a pattern for the rhythm and repetition of movement, she refines the video’s visual

and aural texture.
