Description

Born in Iran, Jamal and his family have led an unpredictable path of political circumstances. Settling and resettling from one country to the next, eventually finding a secured physical home in Canada. Jamal’s “Folklore of the Orientalists” engages with his personal experiences of origins and identity, where links between a seemingly distant cultural roots and rapidly changing societies are made and remade. Unsettling perceived concepts of decadence/fertility, tradition/progression, and “East”/“West,” he creates a forum for unresolved ideologies of belonging, heritage and nationhood.
