Artist's Statement

Tandis Shoushtary is a 19 year old BFA student at The Cooper Union, who learned the culture and language of her Iranian familial roots in the context of migration. Focused mainly on animation and 16mm film, her work investigates the shaping of identity and its hybrid forms resulting from relocation. Her videos have been shown as single-channel work and installations at numerous venues, including the Carnegie Institution of Washington (2018), Before We Were Banned (2018), San Mauro International Film Festival (2018), Miami Independent Film Festival (2017), and Toronto Alternative Film Festival (2017).
