Farnaz Dadfar is an Iranian-born Australian artist, based in Sydney. Her interdisciplinary practice is characterised by a personal narrative offering a small window into an alternative realm of spiritual and philosophical experience. By recuperating certain characteristics of Persian Sufi poetry and Farsi literature as artistic material, she is exploring the concept of linguistic diaspora and flâneur through a lens of displacement and migration. Dadfar has exhibited nationally and internationally in public and private galleries and museums since 2004. She has recently exhibited at the churchie 2017, Kings ARI, Flinders Lane Galley, Incinerator Gallery, Blindside, Islamic Museum of Australia, and Sarang Building Yogyakarta. She was also selected as one of the finalists for the Linden Art Prize 2019 and the Keith and Elisabeth Murdoch Travelling Fellowship 2019; and she has been the recipient of a number of awards including The University of Sydney Research Training Program (RTP) Stipend Scholarship (2021), VCA Access mentorship (2019), The David Richards Drawing Award (2019) and The Victorian College of the Arts Galloway Lawson prize (2017). Dadfar is currently a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, The University of Sydney.
