One of Shirana Shahbazis topics is the exploration of the pathos of Persian culture. At the same time, the Tehran-born artist shows her alien perception of it, focussing on its grandeur and thus rendering it questionable. Hers is not the attempt to make pictures of Iran available to a Western audience, but a contemporary version of a reconciliation and an exploration of that which is alien in all cultures. In this series she puts together single pictures which are at the same time calm and spectacular, special and not specified, to form a macrocosm of clichés that cancel each other out. Shirana Shabazi came to Germany in 1985 and studied film and photography at German and Swiss universities for art and design. Today, she is living in Switzerland and makes regular trips to Iran.
