London- and Stockholm-based artist
Farvash, born in 1982 in Tehran, Iran, is a London- and Stockholm-based artist working in the realm of material science. She holds an MFA in Experience Design and a BFA in Interior architecture and Furniture design from Konstfack, as well as an MA in Contemporary art, Critical Practice, from the London Royal College of Art. Her earlier background in chemistry allows her to create transdisciplinary works linking various fields of science with arts and design, through performance, installations, technology, material experiments, and holograms. Deeply rooted within Persian mythological practices, Farvash’s work is based on both conscious and unconscious self-censorship as a survival strategy: she often uses transformative materials, which can change color and shape. For Misschiefs, she created an installation and performance that bring questions about identity and trauma at the center of contemporary design. She has worked for many international brands such as Chanel, Taittinger, Hennessy, and Absolut Vodka.
