Laleh Kazemi Veisari b. 1983


Laleh Kazemi Veisari (b. 1983) lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. Her interdisciplinary practice embraces drawing, painting, sculpture and writing, and engages in collaborative processes, researching the social and environmental imaginary. Within these frames of reflection and study her installations develop and entangle questions of displacement and memory. Among her solo exhibitions are Bror Hjorths Hus, Uppsala, Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Stockholm, and Oktogonen, Göteborgs Konsthall, Gothenburg. She is the recipient of the 2018 Bror Hjorth Drawing Grant (Bror Hjorthföreningens stipendium för unga tecknare), the 2019 Bernadotte Grant, and only recently announced as the 2022 grant holder of the Beckers Art Award (Beckers Konstnärsstipendium). Laleh Kazemi Veisari holds an MFA in Fine Arts (2019) from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm.
