Sepideh’s creative practice revolves around personal memories and what it means to be female, through which she examines issues that implicate society, politics and culture. Her use of textile, as well as various media such as installation, sculpture, painting and drawing, offers metaphors for the oppression of women. Childhood memories, lived experiences and the artist’s own cultural background strongly inform the work she produces.

Sepideh’s work incorporates worn clothing, fabric and discarded objects in a symbolic gesture to distant memories and the passing of time. The transformation of thought and the body is integral to how the artist uses these elements to traverse emotion, trauma, vulnerability, sexuality and the body.
