Introduction by Abigail Doan
About the project:
Anamnesis, a project created by Nazanin Sadr Azodi, is a shared narrative experience exploring the importance of memories and identity through the tradition of weaving. A collaboration with four Iranian tribal women, in a show of rugs, using the power of recollection and the art of weaving to tell their personal stories. The Anamnesis book chronicles the journey of finding rare artisans, each living and working in remote regions in Iran. It tells the intimate, and sometimes heartbreaking, memories that each woman masterfully wove into their piece.
