Biography

Dorsa Asadi - Artists - Green . Art . Gallery

Dorsa Asadi, Bending Sinnerman offering his burning flesh to Elle and Belle, 2022

 

Dorsa Asadi’s ceramic sculptures combine local references, such as the aesthetics of colorful Iranian paintings and tiles, with contemporary subject matter such as gender, identity, environmental issues, and narratives that have shaped paradigms throughout history. She fabricates myths based on frequent motives in mythology across the world, for instance, the duality and superpowers of twins, fertility, sacrifice, and death, in order to make her narrative installations.
