    Yosra Mojtahedi was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1986. A graduate of Fresnoy-Studio national des arts contemporains (FR), she explores different fields of art, science and technology (particularly Soft robotics – Deformable robots), with a look at anthropology. She studies humans in all their aspects, both physical and cultural (social, religious, psychological) and their relationships with nature. In the form of sculptural and interactive installations, drawings or photographs, organic, sensual and mystical landscapes appear. It bathes in a surreal atmosphere, a space freed from place and time, where objects and elements are symbolic: flowers, stones, umbilical cords, organs, bathed in twilight darkness. Following her research around nature, and also the place of the human body (and more particularly the female body) in society, she questions the border between the living and the non-living through sculptures considered as “machine-human”. Coming from a country where the body is a taboo subject and its representation prohibited, her works are in sensual and sensory reaction: tactile, olfactory, sometimes touching on eroticism.
