nahita Norouzi is an Iranian born, Montréal based artist graduated from Soureh University/Tehran in 2007 and Concordia University/Montreal in 2013.
Norouzi’s practice engages with a variety of media, primarily photography and video. In her art practice, self-representation is an integral component — she frequently uses self-portraiture as means of engaging with various contemporary social situations. By merging the images and voices of personal experiences with the socio-cultural reflections, her body of work revolves primarily around the idea of questioning the representation of the position one holds as a minority within a socio-political system. Since 2010 she is traveling frequently to Iran to conduct her research and gather material for her work.
Norouzi has participated in several group exhibitions in Iran and Montreal, including “MOP CAP Art Prize”, London and Dubai (2013), “Le Festival des Arts de Montreal”, Montreal (2012), “14”, Montreal (2012), “Sortie”, Montreal (2012), “Regards Tehran, Virtual or Real”, Tehran (2010), “Baz in Che Shuresh Ast”, Tehran (2012), “New Folder 1”, Tehran (2010), the 10th and 11th Biennial of Iran Photography, Tehran (2006 and 2008).
