Iranian-American artist Golnar Adili studied architecture at the University of Michigan before receiving a grant that allowed her to pursue a more conceptual artistic practice. Her multimedia practice meditates on longing and separation through sculptural forms that continually reference the body and domestic space. At WSW, Golnar explored the language of ancient Persian poetry in layered silkscreen prints. She has been awarded residencies at The MacDowell Colony, The Rockefeller Foundation at Bellagio, and the Lower East Side Printshop, among others. Golnar currently lives and works in New York City.
