Candice Dehnavi
Candice Dehnavi’s practice has evolved in exploring the distance of cultural familiarity: the other within and given body through recreated memories. Memories of an Iranian-English upbringing find themselves exaggerated through dreamlike imagery that communicates hazily remembered experiences and stories.

Their work samples disparate elements from a personal history of detachment, and through the lens of absurdity, presents a comically exaggerated visual space into which one can insert their own narrative meaning. It transverses the dreamlike nature of formative experiential recollection to a physical world of representation.

Candice Dehnavi is a sculpture artist currently living and working in London. They hold BA (Hons) Manchester School of Art and MA Sculpture, Royal College of Art.
