Faegheh (Victoria) Kalantari

Faegheh ‘Vicki’ Kalantari is an international artist born in Tehran, Iran. She completed her Bachelor of Photography at Azad University in Tehran. Vicki completed her Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Windsor. As an Iranian native who was born and raised in an entirely different region from that of North America, she is still dependent on parts of her culture, arts, language, etc. Her work deals with her personal reflections on themes of memory, absence, nostalgia, adaptation, displacement.

As an Iranian immigrant, Vicki moved to Windsor, Ontario and faced challenges reconciling her sense of identity in her new home. Using photography, text, video and audio, Vicki explores displacement and adaption, sometimes inviting viewers to identify with her experiences, and at other times challenging viewers to experience the feelings of not understanding, of not belonging.
