Bahar Borna Faraz was born in Tehran (Iran) and currently, she lives and works in Stockholm (Sweden).
Her works take a critical and at the same time personal view of social, political and cultural issues. Bahar Borna Faraz challenges her gender, the roles that society has been imposed on her as a woman and as an Iranian. She challenges the social norms from a female point of view and tries to understand her body and use it in a therapeutical way to conquer difficulties that she has experienced in throughout her life. "I am a soul lost between countries, continents and art is my salvation." (Bahar Borna Faraz)
Bahar Borna Faraz uses video art, photography and performance art as media to transfer her thoughts. She just wants to share the path with others. Her methodology is consistent and for each project, she starts with an idea, a feeling. At Studio : Ilka Theurich she will present her new performance selfonizing.
