Bahar Behbahani is a New York based artist, whose research-based practice explores cultural landscapes. Through a range of media—painting, video, installation, and interactive lectures—she reinvents archival materials to question the relationship between knowledge, power, and spatial memory.

(Up)rooted: A study on Immigrant Flora, is a process-oriented and multidisciplinary exhibition, including film, photography, drawing and sound. This body of work is part of a larger ongoing series of Immigrant Flora which stages the plants as witness across different landscapes to examine the culture of immigration. In this series of works Behbahani collaborated with her mother as a dynamic agent to interlace the language, spiritual, and ritual aspect of repositioning body, memory, and commerce.
