Adena Mirzakhanian

Adena Mirzakhanian (b.1987, Tehran, Iran) holds a bachelor's and master's degree in painting from Tehran University of Art. In her collages, Mirzakhanian depicts crowded and suspenseful spaces. Using mass-produced materials, the artist asks the audience to explore and search within the different layers of the work. By adding and removing these disposable materials in a long process, she creates a new medium out of the found objects.
In her paintings, she mostly plays with the concept of "time" and shapes her works by cutting and putting images together again in a new context.
