Introduction

Bita Razavi, born in Tehran, lives and works between Helsinki and the Estonian countryside. She was selected to represent Estonia in 59th Venice Biennale in 2022 together with Kristina Norman.

The series “Sweet Patterns for a Perfect Family” from 2016 is based on images and sewing patterns from European sewing magazines from the 1980s and 1990s. These were the first images from the West after the Islamic Revolution in Iran.  At that time in the artist’s childhood these magazines created a picture of an ideal future, a perfect family. Drawings on the sewing patterns are created by the following method: choose any line, ignore the rules, draw the image you see.

The drawings are unframed, but we will help you find the proper framing.
It is possible to purchase a single piece from the series, 750 €.
