Unveiling the veil, 2010
Through her photography and video practice, Iranian-born Nasim Nasr explores and comments upon both specific and universal cultural concerns in contemporary society. Her work has engaged complex issues of State and self-censorship, the transience of cultural and personal identity, and global concerns of civil, social and political unrest.
In Unveiling the veil, Nasim Nasr explores themes of the intercultural dialogue and the veiling of women through photography and video installations. Nasr is interested in the notion of cultural relationships and their role in Western and Eastern contemporary society.
Nasr’s artwork articulates the complexities within contemporary notions of transmutable identities and cultural difference, as experienced between her past and present homelands.
