Déjà vu by Mahla Karimian

Visual Art

Déjà vu. A feeling of having already experienced the present situation.

As a refugee, the COVID-19 lockdown gave me another challenging period proving it to be difficult to be an artist. Digging through to my struggles , emotions, creations, relations, talents and surviving allowed me to turn a technique completely differently, because of all the limitations.

Déjà vu is a photo series, created by a scanner and not using any professional materials. It shares a story of my feelings about the COVID-19 quarantine, the feelings of going through the same previous situation of freedom in a different way.

Story of struggles healed by Love.”
