SHEKARE AZADI is an interdisciplinary project which began formation over the course of 2022, where Roxanna Albayati spent the year interrogating different environments and herself within these spaces. This personal as well as location-based journey explored her ever-evolving concept of identity, freedom and becoming. From Dubai, to Armenia, to Sicily, Roxanna ended the journey in Portugal as Zaratan's artist in resident, presenting her work alongside the backdrop of the current uprising in Iran, where Iranian’s are fighting for “Zan, Zendegi, Azadi (Women, Life, Freedom).”

Moments
