As an Iranian native, Canadian citizen, and American resident, Azin Seraj’s art practice is situated between languages and cultures, and informed by her experience as an immigrant woman. Seraj’s video, photography, and multimedia installations are grounded in a transnational visual culture that is unique to her personal history, and presented as visually and sonically lush environments
Seraj’s social practice artworks make use of citizen journalism and research into Middle Eastern and Western colonial histories. She seeks to raise awareness of international political issues by connecting viewers with existing activist networks. Her mission is to amplify the voices of the oppressed. Seraj’s work as an educator bridges seamlessly into organization of collective communities of artists and activists through exhibitions, screenings, and actions that function as platforms to archive and share cultural currencies.
