The Power Plant

Rouzbeh Akhbari

Rouzbeh Akhbari is a Tehran-born, Toronto-based artist working in video installation and film. His practice is research-driven and usually exists at the intersections of storytelling, critical architecture, and human geography. Through a delicate examination of the violence and intimacies that occur at the boundaries of lived experience and constructed histories, Akhbari uncovers the minutiae of power that regiments the world around us. He holds a BFA in Sculpture and Installation from the Ontario College of Art and Design University, Toronto, and is currently pursuing a PhD in Geography and Planning at the University of Toronto.
