Atoosa Pour Hosseini
Atoosa Pour Hosseini is a Dublin-based visual artist, filmmaker, member of Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, and co-director of Experimental Film Society. She makes film, installation and performance work about the nature of memory, illusion, reality and perception. She attempts to convey and examine several recurring themes that relate to location, reflection, alienation and her relationship with her surroundings. She works with the material textures of 8mm and 16mm as well as digital processes to explore layers of space and time, superimposing imagery and creating entrancing patterns of repetition with startling interruptions. This is usually presented in two visual planes: the captured image and the surface of the film strip itself. She holds an MA in Fine Art Media from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin as well as BA in Fine Art Painting at Azad University of Art and Architecture, Tehran. She has shown her work extensively and won numerous awards nationally and internationally. Her films Antler (2018) and Mirage (2015) were recently acquired for The Arts Council Collection and The Irish Museum of Modern Art Collection. Her work has featured and reviewed in The Irish Times, RTÉ Culture, MUBI Notebook, Winter Papers, Visual Artists Ireland among international film journals.
