Tirdad Hashemi participated in the Bourse Révélations Emerige in 2019. Her solo exhibition Wet Plastic Fragile Heart is currently on view at gb agency in Paris.
Tirdad is a 2021 HUJ:C resident artist.
RAMIN PARVIN was born and raised in Iran. He studied cinema/direction at university and made several short movies and animation. He has participated in international film festivals, winning prizes for his shorts. Parallel to his studies at university, he began painting and exhibited in several solo and group shows in Iran and USA, Sweden, Austria, and Germany.
Over the last ten years, Parvin has spent his time by making films. The themes that have inspired him relate to every day (life) rituals, unimportant objects that become important through their use. Also, intimacy, -between people in order to different forms of the connection between, family members, couples, neighbors or even strangers. Parallel to his film making, he has conceived various forms of aesthetic research (collage, drawing, story-boarding, etc.) through which new ideas and stories for films emerge. He chooses women as the main characters in his films. In his films he attempts to eliminate all stereotypes of a scene; things like portraits, the set, and the acting (body) vanish, in order to bring focus to the stories and emotions between the characters.
Parvin moved to Germany in 2013. He works and lives in Berlin.
