Azadeh Hamzeii presents new work commissioned by Metro Arts in association with 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art.

With a focus on the dialogues between the individual and the universal, Azadeh Hamzeii mines her personal history and cultural background as an Iranian based in Meanjin (Brisbane).

Hamzeii draws from a range of subjects and materials including votive offerings, beeswax, fishing hooks, her father’s old film negatives, and Keffiyeh, to investigate the localised significance of objects and the potential to elevate their meaning, creating a broader human narrative.
