Nazanin Fakoor is a Brussels based visual artist and director. Her visual installations and performances are worlds that the spectator can enter and influence. They offer utopian approaches to reality, at the intersection of recognition and alienation, reality and possibility, the aesthetic and the social. Her practice combines video, performance and installation using light, sound and movement.
Fakoor’s recent creations include the music theater performance and immersive installation of Rainbow. Her work was shown in Belgium, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Portugal, Canada and the United States. The installations Light Drawing and Rainbow were recently purchased by the M HKAMuseum of Contemporary Art Antwerp as an acquisition for the Art Collection of the Flemish Community of Belgium.
Fakoor studied theatre at Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich and at Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris. She subsequently studied scenography at La Cambre School of Visual Arts in Brussels and graduated in 2008.
