Parsa Kamehkhosh

Designer/Visual & Performance Artist www.parsa-kamehkhosh.com studio@parsa-kamehkhosh.com +358452332200

Parsa Kamehkhosh (b.1985) is a visual and performance artist currently based in Helsinki. Being in the world is all he is trying to experience. Being present with all of his senses and letting himself be touched and fascinated by what life puts forward. He is constantly internalizing his perceptions and reflects on them in the form of “bringing things”. This natural process is a way to understand his position in the world and express his appreciation of it. The outcome usually works either like a mirror that reflects untreated or unrevealed aspects of his personality or practice through which he encounters and contends with his inner tensions. He believes more in bringing than creating because he identifies himself only as a door through which idea can enter the conceivable realm of existence in a certain way.
