Desire Moheb-Zandi - A Way To Stay

Desire Moheb-Zandi integrates personal history and cultural identity in her large-scale, sculptural tapestries. Drawing from memories of her childhood in Turkey, where she passed hours watching her grandmother weave, Moheb-Zandi meshes traditional techniques with modern motifs and media.

In addition to including rubber tubing, soft sculpture and synthetic netting in her work, Moheb-Zandi fashions the loom as a sort of analogue computer, where the code is her pattern, and her manipulation of the pattern creates optical resonance and movement.

The diversity of material and fabrication techniques that Moheb-Zandi uses function on formal and conceptual levels; her work is visually dynamic and elegant, and it serves as a record of the artist’s life and journeys.
