About the artist
Toufan Hosseiny’s work is defined by repetitions of patterns and movements. Working mainly with textile as a medium in her work, she transforms what represents fear and anxiety into something playful and poetic. ‘The process is slow. I repeat the same movement again and again. A way for me to reconcile with the subject, reshaping the ugly into something beautiful.’ Her recent work, Clouds, illustrates fragments of thoughts appearing and disappearing during her meditative process. ‘We create our own reality. Just look at the clouds passing by.’ Each piece of the same fabric takes a different colour. A colour that will be interpreted differently by each of us. Born in 1988 in La Louvière, Toufan Hosseiny currently lives and works in Brussels and London.
