Born in Iran, Farvash is a research-based artist whose practice is deeply rooted within Persian mythologies, histories, and ontologies.
Her practice focuses on transformative processes that span from micro-realities to navigating contemporary immigration guilt.
With a background in chemistry, she redefines scientific methods within the realm of material science and art. Creation of materials by studying characteristics, qualities, properties and behaviours from the smallest material component, nanotechnology and extends all levels to performance, lectures, and installations.
Her artworks are micro-realities, where each reality holds a system of logic, matter, persona linking to personal anecdotes and trauma.

Misschiefs Takeover is a rescue operation for women artists who are particularly impacted by the current global economic crisis. In collaboration with major firms holding the keys to large empty spaces in major European cities, we provide free art studios to a selected group of women artists and designers to work, show and sell their art directly to the public. Our first Misschiefs Takeover Art Studio Pop-Up is in Stockholm from August 10 to November 27, open to the public from 10am to 5pm monday to friday. Located on Linnégatan 4, Misschiefs takes over a 500m2 former laundry factory. All the original Misschiefs collectible design pieces, video art and installations will be on display, as well as a group of 10 selected women artists who will work daily on site.
