BIOGRAPHY

Neda Razavipour

 

Born in 1969 in Tehran, Iran. Lives in Tehran.

 

Graduated in Fine Arts from the University Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne, and in Stage/Space Design from ENSAD, Paris. Her practices aim to connect the arts with everyday life events. She meets the challenges deeply embedded in her society and her personal life, and attempts to change the role of the viewer from ordinary spectator to active participant, using a variety of media. Her recent investigations into performance art allude to the notion and experience of equilibrium, its relation to instability, and the manner in which these two concepts coexist, forming a threshold between order and chaos on which life depends.

 

Razavipour has co-founded several collectives and NGO in Iran, including different range of activities as experimental theatre company -Leeve -, collective artistic space and group  - Jalleh , Movazi -, artist health support network –Karestan-, and civil rights activism against the air pollution in Tehran –NAFAS-.
