Cluster 6 was created with a common interest in exploring the structure and meaning of language. Taking the area of “Lappkärrsberget” as a starting point, the group investigated what meanings could be hidden within appellations of territories and how much this meaning accurately refers to the history of a place.

Mehregan Meysami (b. Tehran, Iran) lives and works between Tehran and Stockholm.
Meysami’s work is inextricably connected to the intangibility of time, space and structures of the language. Employed by non-narrative, semi-documentary, and quasi-autobiographical approaches, her practice is shaped around the convergence of the poetics and the built world, rendered through multidisciplinary mediums such as: audio-visual installations, architectural interventions, photography and experimental film.
She received a BFA from Art Center College of Design, in Pasadena, California and a B.Arch in Architecture from Tabriz Art University in Iran. She is a current MFA candidate at Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm.
Solo exhibitions include: Image Room, Galleri Seilduken, Oslo, Norway (2019), I Am In The Shelter Of The Window, Degree Show, ArtCenter, Pasadena, CA, USA, (2017); velvet on velvet, ArtCenter, Pasadena, CA, USA (2017).
