Reyhaneh Mirjahani is a visual artist and artistic researcher. She holds an MFA in Fine Art, HDK-Valand, Gothenburg University, Sweden, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Sculpture, School of Fine Arts, University of Tehran, Iran. In addition, she participated in the Commissioning and Curating Contemporary Public Art and Contemporary Arts and Politics Courses at HDK-Valand.

Presently Reyhaneh’s artistic research is focused on two parallel pathways: exploring a) the relationship between affects, body, and installation objects in a participatory approach and b) the correlation between political conflicts, community and individual agency. Her interest in the intersection between these two is in order to understand and challenge the role of art and artists in communicating the issues we face in contemporary life, as well as finding intersectional methods within sociology, politics and art to facilitate or mediate a space in which the complexity of contemporary politics can be discussed. Recently, this has been enriched with collaborative works she is doing with other artists, curators and organizations, in order to exercise the multiplicity of collective voices.

Parallel with my individual artistic projects, Reyhaneh has been developing her practical, curatorial and collaborative experiences in different institutions and organizations, mainly to understand the different modes of display and collaboration, as well as exploring the potentials and limitations within them. In addition, to understand the role of art institutions as a tool to unfold the social issues and create a discursive atmosphere to engage with people. Reyhaneh has been working as a junior publicist at Propaganda Gallery in Warsaw, practitioner at Röda Sten Konsthall in Gothenburg, and currently, She is a research assistant in an untitled virtual platform and a distant curator assistant in Raf Projects in Berlin.

Reyhaneh’s work and research have been presented in several exhibitions and publications in Iran, Poland, UK, Italy, Turkey and Sweden.
