Aishe Vejdani (b.1986, Gonbad-e kavoos, Iran) is a multidisciplinary artist and an emerging filmmaker based in Turku, Finland. One of the recurring themes in her works is to trace the absence and erasure of female subjectivity within socio-cultural systems specifically found in her own familial memory. She attempts to recognise female subjectivity and mobilise its absence through laughter, imageries and moments she considers as visual hiccups and therefore pushes it into representation. Through her practice as an interdependent individual, she shapes and reshapes her identity in between of different awareness and cultural spaces.

Depending on her subject matter, she uses different disciplines such as painting, film, music, and video art. In her upcoming shows she will experiment with installation and animation. She has exhibited and screened in Finland and Iran.
