BALTIC Bites | Laleh Khorramian

Archive Shelf Location BALTIC2022M
Publication Date 02 Jun 2022

Laleh Khorramian’s work spans animation, drawing, monotypes, collage, paintings, sculpture and clothing. Her practice combines the cosmological thinking of ancient cultures, their complex mythologies and spiritual vocabularies within her own imagined worlds, synthesising them into histories that are both futuristic and ancient. By removing cultural or historical specificity from her narratives, she uses the ordinary to portray the epic, the universal and the transient, in a search for worlds beyond our own.

Born in Tehran, Iran, Khorramian lives in Upstate New York. She studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and received her undergraduate degree from The Art Institute of Chicago, and her MFA from Columbia University, New York. She has exhibited in the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, US; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Art Basel, Switzerland; Ballroom Marfa, Texas; Istanbul Museum of Art, Istanbul; the Sundance Film festival; Midnight Moment, Times Square, New York and Queensland Art Gallery, South Brisbane, Australia.
