Ali Tahayori on The Art Show, Radio National, talking about poetry and NAS exhibition Braving Time
NAS alumnus Ali Tahayori talks about “My Thing is…” on the Art Show, sharing the inspiration he finds in the lyrical poetry of the master Hafez. Ali works with sparkling hand-cut mirrors that reference the traditional Iranian craft of Āine-Kāri. Through light and mirror, he explores transcendent moments and what it means to be queer and diasporic. He also discusses his work in Braving Time: Contemporary Art in Queer Australia at the National Art School in Sydney.
