BIO & STATEMENT
Born in Tehran in 1983, Bita Razavi lives and works in Helsinki and Metsakivi, Estonia. She graduated with a Bachelor of Music from Tehran Art University and holds a Master of Fine Art from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts. While collective memory, collaboration and socio-political observation are the essential elements in Bita's recent practice the dialectic between bringing what is personal to public and the impossibility of total exposure because of law or social pressure has created a secretive and criminal aspect in most of her works.
Razavi had her first solo exhibition in Israel under the name of an Israeli artist, which was a manifestation against the political games between Iran and Israel. She has exhibited her works in Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, 3rd New Art Biennial of Tehran, 1st Trondheim Biennial, XV Biennale de la Méditerranée, Thessaloniki, Helsinki Photography Biennale, Helsinki Design Museum, videobrasil and Cité international des Arts, Paris.
