Khashayar Javanmardi, born in 1991, is an Iranian lens-based artist. Javanmardi’s poetic depictions of the Caspian Sea reflect his own upbringings along it’s shorelines, the urgent pressure of climate change and environmental degradation on this important body of water, and the lives that persist on it’s banks. Javanmardi’s sympathetic documentary voice captures both the mystery and poetry of the Iranian coastline, but also the stark contrast of pollution and destruction of the natural environment. After being made to leave Iran due to his political and cultural beliefs, Javamardi’s Caspian work also speaks of the contradictions of his homeland. Javanmardi is now based in Lausanne, Switzerland.
