Zanneh Pars

This work explores themes of femininity through a Persian cultural lens and my personal experience of growing up in an Iranian home and an African society. Responding to historic and contemporary representations of women, beauty, defiance, and control, I use collage, self-portraiture, and still life photography as well as performance works.

I stand in solidarity with racial and social justice, and envision a world unified in its diversity and truly equal for all womxn. Black Lives Matter.
