“The Vienna-based artist Sissi Farassat (*1969 in Tehran) has always followed the beat of her own drum, continually expanding traditional notions of the medium of photography. For years, she has been exploring and devising various strategies in order to decelerate the photographic process as well as the way we view of her works. For Farassat, the photo and the print are only the beginning of her creative journey, because what follows are long days and evenings of elaborate handwork and delicate alterations. The print is often embroidered, perforated, studded with stones and sequins, decorated with threads or tinsel, applications that used to be denoted as feminine handicrafts, but that have since become much more widespread.
