About Nikta Mohammadi 

Originally from Tehran and now based in West Yorkshire, Memory Stone is Nikta Mohammadi’s first institutional solo exhibition. This brand-new work has been commissioned by The Lowry through its Artist Development Programme: Developed With The Lowry. 

Memory Stone is an immersive film installation exploring dreams and displacement within the context of the British countryside. Transforming the gallery space through highly composed and performative video work and an accompanying visceral soundscape by composer Babak Mirsalari, audiences will experience an alternate version of Northern landscape. Combining elements of Sci-fi and Iranian mythology, Mohammadi reflects on her own and other migrants’ psychological and physical relationship with land and place. Rather than presenting the landscape as a passive backdrop for human stories, Mohammadi treats the landscape as a creature with agency, one that’s alive.
