Farbod Fakharzadeh

Farbod Fakharzadeh (born 1986, Rasht) is an Iranian artist, curator and storyteller based in Helsinki. In 2018 he received a Master’s degree in Visual Culture and Contemporary Art at Aalto University. He occasionally assembles objects, images and words together. His works often circulate around the themes of absurdism, power structures and failure and he works with history, archives and storytelling as tools for imagining and visualizing parallel possibilities.

In 2020 he co-founded Taidekirppis. An archive of exhibitions, an experimental space and a support structure dedicated to emerging contemporary artists based in Finland.
