Shiva Yourdkhani

︎︎︎Imaginative Gardens

Shiva Yourdkhani holds an MFA in painting from Tehran University of Art, Iran. After graduation and few years of focusing on the medium of painting, she turned to new mediums to experience new forms of perception.The core of her current interdisciplinary practice is the concept of “environment” which revolves around its socio-economic and political dimensions and their effects on the medium and material. She focuses, in particular, on the condition in which an artistic practice can be affected by these crucial dimensions in very first steps and how a personal artistic experience of environment can be extended into the common lived experience. Shiva uses such mediums as video, sculpture and installation to actualize her own comprehension of environment through tangible and intangible objects she makes or imagines.
