Iranian-born artist and architect whose work has been the subject of many exhibitions all over the world, currently living and working across Iran, Europe (Berlin. Framed within an urban setting, Shahram's practice diffuses the idea of the urban space being a reserve for the practice and performance of the white, middle class, hetro-sexual male. He explores these ideas via a variety of performative practices using architecture, installation and digital media. Shahram explores society's prejudices and suspicion of 'the Other' by visualizing fear and paranoia and the stereotypes constructed about 'the Other' owing to colour, religion or ethnicity; as well as how people participate in the ghettoization of the minority through perception, politics, propaganda and control. Hence, Shahram chooses to highlight individuals who are ordinarily marginalized and made invisible or forced into self-ghettoization from the urban domain, such as migrant communities and their cultures, particularly communities from the Middle East and its diaspora. The question of visibility and invisibility is therefore a theme he recurrently explores within his practice. Born in Beroujerd, Iran, lives and works in Berlin , Studied graphic-design at the University of Teheran, Iran, Studied architecture, urbanism, and Italian language in Perugia and Reggio Calabria, Italy.
