Leila Pazooki was born in 1977 in Tehran and currently lives and works in Berlin. Pazooki’s work is primarily an inquiry into the concept of borders, and the manner in which information, language, visual vernacular, and cultural associations are contorted and conflated as they cross physical and imaged boundaries. Pazooki’s multi-layered works serve to dissolve the distinction between what is tolerable and taboo. In the current works, Pazooki uses fabric and embroidery, traditionally associated with women’s work to explore and express the deep emotional state of being.
