About Ghazel:

“My work has obsessively questioned otherness, contemporary migrations, uprootedness, belonging, hybridity, social issues and the effects of War. Often self-portraits, going from the Me series to the Tree (which represents me), it is always directly inspired by my hybrid life, my multiple imperfect identities and the social work I have been doing since the mid-90s with delinquent youngsters, street children, migrants and asylum seekers. I believe art can only be a strategy of resistance.”

Ghazel was born in 1966 in Tehran.
She received her B.F.A. and M.F.A. from L’Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Nîmes (France). She also received a B.A. in Film Studies from Paul Valéry University in Montpellier.

Her works are in many public collections, including the Musée National d’art Moderne, Centre Pompidou (Paris), MUMOK Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig (Vienna), the Musée national de l’histoire de l’immigration (Paris), the Aïshti Foundation (Beirut), and the Bic Collection (Paris).
