Pegah Pasalar

Pegah Pasalar is an Iranian interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker currently based in Chicago. Pegah’s auto-ethnographic practice explores motifs such as identity convulsion, cultural memory, fragmentation, and displacement. For Sea of Fertility, Pegah presents  Inflatable bodies, a  two-channel video installation exploring the secluded worlds belonging to women, their sense of identity and perspective, with all the displacement, fragmentation, and constant transformation that prevails in their experience and psyche. Inflatable bodies questions the invisible tensions and restrictions, and unnoticed violence surrounding women’s bodies and their environments.
