Scenes from a Separated Life / Heroes

Tara Cooper, Parvaneh Radmard

Tara Cooper’s Scenes from a Separated Life features photo-based works on paper and video that explore the physical and emotional distances that can exist between a couple in relation to desire, separation and “the relentlessness of internal longings.” Parvaneh Radmard’s Heroes considers the struggle between patriotism and the consequences of war within a Canadian context. This large-scale work combines personal and mass-media images with prose by Persian poet Aref Ghazvini.
