Narges Porsandekhial (she/her) is a Persian multidisciplinary artist who holds an MFA degree from the University of Saskatchewan. She primarily works in installation, socially engaged practices, public art, and text-based work. Her work deals with the repetition of daily life activities, while focusing on conceptual and social practices, mental health issues, and institutional critique from time to time.
Narges strives to make art that addresses everyone in its commonality, engenders feelings of belonging, of the communal, and ultimately, if successful acts therapeutic. This overt intention to enact an ethics of care within her artistic practice is rooted in her desire for connection at a time of displacement and disruption. She believes that art is not a luxurious object for a specific group of people and it’s the element of storytelling that invites a broad audience to the work.
