Elham Eshraghian

Perth

Artist Statement

Elham Eshraghian is an Australian Iranian- Bahá’í Artist specialising in film and video installations. Exploring the concept of cultural identity and loss, her aim is to create an empathetic and affective poetic space. By combining the historical narrative with evocative symbolism, she addresses the Iranian diaspora and the emotional impacts of displacement and conflict. Each video installation conceptually act as a message to those who are displaced and have endured hardship, including Eshraghian’s mother, and to unveil their story that should be never silenced. However, the films poetic and somewhat ambiguous style calls for a wider reflection on one’s own experience and the ability to empathize with the Other, whether a refugee arriving to a new country or a host welcoming into a country.
