Bahar B. Faraz Lives and works in Sweden My works take a critical and at the same time personal view of social, political and cultural issues. In my works, I challenge my gender, the rolls that society has been imposed to me as a woman and as an Iranian. I challenge the social norms from a female point of view. I try to understand my body and use is in a therapeutic way to conquer the difficulties that I have experienced in my life. AUTHENTIC is an attempt to show us that we are all original no matter what.
