She currently lives and works between Toronto and San Francisco, and is represented by Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto and Ab-Anbar Gallery in Tehran.
In this series, Mazinani reflects on the current global climate crisis by imagining the earth’s future, asking: “What myths will need to be created to tell the story of our current earth? What narratives will develop to explain the profound ecological changes that occurred in the first decades of the 21st century, when a society driven by technology, capital and industrial activity transformed the planet in unprecedented ways?” Initiated in her major public art commission All that Melts: notes from the future-past (2020) at the Vancouver Art Gallery’s public art space Offsite, this recent work layers several digital images of natural and mass-produced materials alike. These include indigenous plants threatened by extinction, dichroic glass and plastic packaging collected by the artist during the spring and summer of 2020.
