FARISH HAS PARTICIPATED IN TENS OF ART FESTIVALS AND ART COMPETITIONS. IN ADDITION, HER PIECES HAVE BEEN SHOWCASED IN SEVERAL GALLERIES IN IRAN AND PARIS, AS WELL AS LONDON DESIGN WEEK, AND MILAN DESIGN WEEK. ‘WEAR THE MEDIA’. “IT HAS BEEN YEARS THAT MY DEAR MASTER, PARVIZ TANAVOLI IS TEACHING US A LOT WHEN IT COMES TO SCULPTURES THAT ARE WEARABLE, ESPECIALLY REMINDING US HOW VALUABLE IT IS TO BE ABLE TO MAKE SMALL SCULPTURES THAT CAN BE CARRIED AROUND EASILY. BUT WHAT FASCINATES ME EVEN MORE IS THE MEANING BEHIND THEM. IT IS INTERESTING HOW MY SCULPTURES ARE PERCEIVED IN THE EYES OF THE BEHOLDERS WHEN SEEN WORN BY A VARIETY OF PEOPLE.” SAYS FARISH. “LOOKING FOR A TOPIC TO JOIN A CONVERSATION AND DIVULGE YOUR OPINION. HMMM… SO, WHAT’S NEW?!! HAVE YOU READ THE PAPERS TODAY? WHICH ONE IS REALLY TELLING THE TRUTH? IS IT “JAM E JAM” OR “SHARGH”? “ETEMEAD” OR “AFTAB YAZD” MAYBE “KEYHAN”? MAYBE IT’S BETTER IF I JUST STAY QUIET! ONE OF THE PAPERS EVEN DENIED THE DECLINE IN THE VALUE OF THE RIYAL!! FARISH ALBORZKHOH MAKES HER WEARABLE SCULPTURES MAINLY USING BRONZE AND LEATHER, AS WELL AS SILVER AND MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE. FARISH HAS JOINED THE ALANGOO MARKETPLACE LAST YEAR AND HER WORK HAS BEEN SHOWCASED IN LONDON, NY, WASHINGTON, D.C. AND L.A. THROUGH ALANGOO EVENTS AND EXHIBITIONS.
