My Story

by:  Elham Fatapour

My Story investigates how historical events from war-stricken communities have a paralyzing effect over bodies.The exhibition consists of two series: My Story and Erosion. My Story is series of 10 life size figurative paintings which suggest Elham’s autobiography. Erosion is a series of works based on injustices suffered by children. The series comments on the often transient nature of many of these refugees’ lives – dissolved and forgotten.
