Rather than a sculptor, installation artist, or ceramicist engaged in a somewhat mystic relationship with her materials, Bita Fayyazi (b. 1962, Iran) is an artist who works within a more performative and markedly social practice. Beginning in the mid-1990s, her artistic interventions challenged the official definitions of art that were often circulated in Tehran at that time. Fayyazi struggled to show her work amidst an atmosphere of traditionalism, academics, and the influx of 1990s conceptual art from abroad.
