Nasim Nasr (b. 1984) graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from the Art University of Tehran, Iran (2006), and a Master of Visual Arts (Research), SA School of Art, University of South Australia (2011).
Through the presentation of multiple channel video works, photography, performance, objects and sound, Nasim Nasr’s collective works have attempted to highlight the complexities within contemporary notions of interchangeable identities and cultural difference, as experienced between her past and present cultures and homelands. In considering the inherent contradictions and ambiguities within how objects and actions have sustained different meanings, and how divergent interpretations impact upon contemporary perspectives, Nasr seeks to establish a symmetry or counterbalance of cultural and intellectual separation between West and East.
Nasim Nasr’s most recent solo exhibition was "The Home, The Habit" May-June 2017 in Greenaway Art Gallery (GAGPROJECTS) Adelaide, Australia.
