Zory is a British- Iranian visual artist based in Greater London. Her practice developed through a concern to explore cultural/political agendas, employing performance in relation to installation and photography. She is exploring a wide range of media processes as well as sculpture and time based imagery. She works with abstract representations of the human body to communicate both literally and metaphorically, using domestic objects such as safety pins, spoons, cloth, rose blossoms, and hair. While her artistic expression influenced by her background, it is also concerned with more universal issues around the contemporary human condition and breaches in human rights. She is primarily interested in the issues and perceptions around displacement, exploitation, and gender oppression.
