In this episode, Monica talks to artist Farnaz Gholami. Farnaz is originally from Iran, but has lived in Boston, South Africa and now London. Farnaz talks about how her experience of moving and living in different places has affected her work. She talks about what it means to to find home, neither here nor there, but in the liminal space between places, otherwise known as, ‘The Third Space’. Her work deals with this idea of hybridity in the ‘Third Space,’ and she uses domestic imagery and imagination to deal with the uncanny feelings of a fragmented identity between places.
