Samaneh Roghani


Samaneh Roghani (b. 1984) is an Iranian artist based in Malmö, Sweden. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Photography from Azad University in Tehran, as well as a BFA and an MFA from Malmö Art Academy at Lund University.

In her works, Roghani weaves together personal stories with universal narratives about people struggling for a better life. There is opposition, resistance, and migration in the face of fear, oppression, and persecution.

Roghani employs a variety of media and techniques, including photography and video, to express herself. She entwines her personal experiences by incorporating self-portraits into the very fabric of her works.

Focusing on installations that give the audience a multi-sensory experience by combining visual, auditory, and tactile elements, Roghani creates powerful immersive experiences that give a better understanding of the conditions of our contemporary societies.
