My Story investigates how historical events from war-stricken communities have a paralyzing effect over bodies.The exhibition consists of two series: My Story and Erosion. My Story is series of 10 life size figurative paintings which suggest Elham’s autobiography. Erosion is a series of works based on injustices suffered by children. The series comments on the often transient nature of many of these refugees’ lives – dissolved and forgotten.

Elham Fatapour is a Toronto based artist born in Tehran, Iran. Elham’s art practice focuses on traumatic middle-east geopolitics in relation to her personal narratives. Her work is charged with empathetic visions, reified into mixed media installations often involving painting and drawing.
