Nooshin Farhid

by Peter Suchin

Art Monthly, July 2012, no. 358, pp. 18-19

Nooshin Farhid is profiled, with special attention given to the way in which she troubles the notion of truth and the conventions of film and video. Farhid moved from Iran to the UK in 1987, and this necessity to assert he selfhood in a culture not her own echoes in her works. Farhid's early works are simple montages, while her more recent work combines CCTV footage, computer screens, radarscopes, news footage and other archival pieces. Farhid's subject matter is widely sourced, but themes of truth, representation, and surveillance ring through all her works.
