Elham Fatapour, homemade satellite dishes
ongoing (15 January 2020 – )

homemade satellite dishes explores media and censorship in the domestic sphere. In regions where the government seeks to control and restrict citizens’ knowledge, satellite dishes are often banned as communication devices. Nevertheless, they are often installed, using camouflage to conceal their presence in public space thus avoiding confiscation. In this installation, artist Elham Fatapour mines the connection between satellite dishes, concealment, textiles, and domestic spaces.

Elham Fatapour was born in Tehran, Iran. Currently a Toronto-based artist and a student in the York MFA program, her recent work includes painting, performance, and mixed media installations and has taken up diverse but interconnected subjects including satellites, surveillance, vernacular architecture, modes of communication, and empathy.
