Goodarzy and Khas often work in collaboration to make large-scale outdoor installations, dealing with the environment. Frequently travelling across Iran to create art in nature, their works culminate in installations, performance and photography. For Tirgan 2011 Goodarzy and Khas will create a site-specific installation in the North Orchard of the Harbour Front Center.
Goodarzy and Khas both attended Shahed University in Tehran earning degrees in Painting. Their works have been featured annually in the Environmental Art Festival in Iran since 2006. Goodarzy primarily makes social-sculpture, extending her process out into the communities she works in to engage a wider public. Most recently, she undertook an ambitious collaborative project titled, “Patchwork”, with 400 students in Khoram Abad, Iran, where Goodarzy worked with youth to revive an old tradition of quilting, designing and creating a monumental piece using recycled fabrics. Khas’s engagement with nature arises from a formal study of light. Working outdoors, she uses mirrors and other reflective materials to create breathtaking installations that speak to the beauty of the environment, and sight as means to interact with the land.
