Negar Tajgardan is a visual artist with a special interest in sculpture, installation-art and photography. Tajgardan's works are based on her memories of coming to Canada from Iran and broader concepts of immigration and displacement. She completed her MFA degree at the University of Saskatchewan.
She is interested in the memories of absent spaces, whether they are missed as a result of growing up, moving or even death, and how these reflect the changes in people’s lives. Tajgardan has chosen paper and dissolvable fabric for their qualities of fragility to speak to the vulnerability in life. She began with her own experience as someone of Middle Eastern background living in Canada, representing memories of her safe place and the connection she is making with the new safe place here in Canada.
