Reihan Ebrahimi is an Iranian-born ceramic artist based in Tiohtiá:ke/ Montreal. She moved to Canada in 2015 and received her BFA in ceramics in 2020 from Concordia University. The focus of her works is a reflection on notions of cultural identity, memory and dislocation. Remaking is the primary approach in Ebrahimi’s work and her research-based practice is nourished by the interplay of her studio practice, personal experiences and research on historical artifacts.
Ebrahimi is the co-curator and co-founder of Nowruz Projects, a multicultural collective which curates events focused on the rite of Nowruz in Western Asia. The project is developed around the theme of “ritual as a space for rebirth, reunion and appreciation of diversity”.
