In Anne-Louise’s performances, the power of originality is shown through direct body experience and her voice. She is inspired by modern religion such as health and pop culture.
Negar Foroughanfars artistic work deals with pain production as an interpersonal phenomenon. Mainly about the pain of women from macho cultures who remain silent to protect their safety. To depict this pain she use everyday objects, which are normally harmless but become in her performances instruments of torture. The aim is to portray and stage complex cultural phenomena and social conflicts with simple means.
