Yalda is a Ceramic Artist based in Canada. She holds a master’s degree from Cardiff School of Art and Design as well as a Bachelor of Applied Arts from University of New Brunswick. She admires technology as much as she loves art; social and cultural issues are concepts that inspire her, so she is trying to find a way to marry technology and art and create a new language to talk about delicate subjects such as, violence and war, religion and women, fear and pain in the most tender way.
“The process has always been more important than the result, the performance more important than the object.”
Creating a methodology to combine theory with practice for visual artists is a must these days. It is not enough to make an object without going through a journey from context to materiality. The process of making is as important as the outcome.
In my work I am exploring – through digital media, philosophy, literature, performance, visual arts and exploring different materials specially ceramics – how artists interact with their viewer.
