Nooshin Rostami (b. Shahroud, Iran) is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist.
Her practice is deeply influenced by a sense of displacement and her experience of exile. Often working with light and the language of abstraction, her work traverses varied media including drawing, sculpture, installation and performance. Through a metaphorical construction and game-like problem solving process, she creates reflective structures and spatial landscapes that constitute personal, social and political narratives. In her work, she examines the impact of displacement as physical, emotional and psychological conditions within an architectural constructs, and play of light and shadow. Her research revolves around spatial geometry acting as a mediation on fundamental aspects of the human condition.
Rostami has widely exhibited and presented her work in solo and group settings in Austria, Canada, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Mexico, Spain, and the United States, including Queens museum, BRIC Contemporary Art and California Museum of Photography. She has participated in residencies both locally and internationally such as NARS Foundation, and Tifa working studios.
