Maryam Tafakory

Combining the moving image and performance art in her video works, Maryam Tafakory is interested in womanhood and rites of passage, drawing on the notion of the personal as political. In the fractured and subjective narrative of Absent Wound (2017), the physical strength of wrestling is contrasted with the protagonist facing the beginning of her menstrual cycle.
