Elaheh Naghi Ganji
As a multidisciplinary artist, Elaheh draws inspiration from the narratives of her everyday surroundings, shaped by her lived experiences. Her art seeks to convey complex philosophical and socio-political notions in a simple yet powerful manner, often infused with the richness of poetry. In this collection, she explores the materiality of an eraser, using it as a means to encapsulate written words in an illegible format, expressing words she never had the courage to say aloud, and releasing the burden she carried for so long. The eraser also serves as a symbol of censorship, highlighting the importance of speaking up as the only way to break free from its grip. Ultimately, Elaheh's art aims to inspire others to find their voice and speak their truth with courage and conviction. Her work aims to be a testament to the transformative power of art and its ability to inspire and empower individuals to make a difference in their communities.
