Farideh Sakhaeifar

Born in 1985 - Iran


Farideh Sakhaeifar (b. 1985) is a New York-based artist born in Tehran, Iran. She received her MFA from Cornell University in 2011 and her BFA from Azad Art and Architecture University in Iran (2008). Sakhaeifar was an artist resident at Workspace Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) (2012-13).

Farideh Sakhaeifar’s work ranges from photography to installation and sculpture, and is usually related to her life experiences. She attempts to look past forms of ethnic, political, and cultural control in order to reflect upon new forms of expression that highlight the human struggle to establish autonomous forms of self-expression. Her work seeks to produce a translational understanding of the social and political struggles that she has been involved with either directly or indirectly.
