The TSV Berlin Artist Fellowship Residency will take place at the Takt International Artist Residency this coming June, 2018. This award is sponsored by Washington DC collector Joette James. Thanks to Ms. James, the TSV Fellowship is a fully funded award that provides an opportunity for our Fellow to make work in one of the most exciting art capitals in the world.

Mojdeh Rezaeipour is an Iranian-American mixed media artist and storyteller. Her semi-autobiographical work explores the duality of her childhood in Iran and the disembodied nature of the immigrant experience through a constant deconstruction and reconstruction of memory and understanding. She is based in her dome studio in the forests of Southern MD and often works in pyrography on wood, incorporating natural elements like roots, petals, branches and pigmented beeswax. After completing her architectural studies at UC Berkeley, Mojdeh has been involved with many facets of art and design in San Francisco, New York, Rome, Tokyo and Washington DC. She is currently pursuing a self-directed masters as a part of Alt*Div with an emphasis on art as spiritual practice and has exhibited locally at venues such as Arlington Arts Center (VA), IA&A (DC), Katzen Art Center (DC), Target Gallery (VA), Olly Olly (VA) and Strathmore Mansion (MD). Mojdeh’s stories have been featured on The Moth Mainstage, Podcast, and Radio Hour. She serves as The Moth’s Washington, DC StorySlam Producer and leads independent workshops on visual storytelling.
