In the Studio with Faraz Anoushahpour, Parastoo Anoushahpour and Ryan Ferko

In this video they discuss working together and the challenges of collective authorship

Faraz Anoushahpour, Parastoo Anoushahpour and Ryan Ferko have been working collaboratively  together since 2013. Through residencies in places as varied as Iran, Taiwan, Germany and Windsor, they developed a visual language that is responsive to local histories. This primarily takes the form of experimental video, installation and performance. They approach the image as an object—one with texture and weight and memory—according to curator Chris Kennedy, who presented a program of their works at TIFF last fall. The versatility of their practice has led them to present work internationally in art contexts, as well as on the experimental film festival circuit. In this video they discuss working together and the challenges of collective authorship.
