The Redistribution Of Memory
Paria Goodarzi work revolves around cultural and political transfers and translocations, the ideas of the contemporary human condition, cultural identity and political issues that resulted in an ambivalent coexistence of civilised life, conflict and displacement.
She examine the hybrid condition of our society and the processes of formation, performance and representation of identity through a multidisciplinary practice that often takes the shape of participatory and socially-engaged artworks.
As part of my initiative practice I focus on ideas of cultural appropriation and belonging by altering the meaning, function and contexts of cultural identity to sheds light on democracy, equality and inclusion on the migratory process.
The Redistribution of Memory sheds light on the daily struggle of the immigration process in the democratic society today. This work is a response to my personal experience of the British citizenship process, as well as my political relationship to the state over the last five years. I attempted to represent the reflection of human progress in society and negotiate the national identity, power and value of time through the durational performance.
This body of work has been a result of my investigation into the process of social and cultural changes as a consequence of political issues.
To emphasis the process of formation, transition and the reality of migration, I have commented on the dehumanisation of modern society and explore the range of geopolitical and national developments in our global world.
