Nooshin Farhids work is primarily concerned with the moving image, which takes the form of single screen works, installations, interventions and animation, still photography and the production of texts.


She approaches the film as collage, working with on- and offline material and with editing and animation techniques alike. Narratives emerge through this process of visual and audio ‘realignment’. Her written texts oscillate between the poetic and the factual, the personal and the philosophic, recited by actors in the form of voiceovers and overlaid onto a composed soundtrack. The spoken word weaves the fragmented narratives together contextually and rhythmically. Farhid’s works, whilst employing different subjects and scenarios, have a connecting thread, a commonality, namely there is a certain kind of agitation, a restlessness and a deliberate disjuncture that ruptures the familiar trajectory of the traditional narrative. This agitation and an unwillingness to settle reflects upon the current state of things socially, politically and ideologically.

Nooshin Farhid has exhibited nationally and internationally. Recent projects include UN-SPEAK, The Centre for Contemporary Art Lagos, Nigeria, This Fanciful Digression, Black Maria - Richard Wentworth, Granary Building, London, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid, video library, La Gaîté lyrique, Paris , Cones, Banner Repeater, London, Salon for a Speculative Future , Chisenhale Studios curated by Monika Oechsler. She was a long time collaborator with her partner Paul Eachus with whom she created many works. Sadly, Paul passed away in 2015.
