Anoushé Shojae-Chaghorvand is a New Jersey based artist who works primarily in kinetic sculpture. She creates spatial cinema in the form of sculptures, installations, and performances that capture the complexity, violence, and absurdity inherent in contemporary culture. She is partially interested in amusement in American culture, and how it runs parallel to tragedy.  Shojae-Chaghorvand’s work encompasses a variety of time based media, initially beginning her artistic practice in performance art, and expanding into kinetic sculpture. In her work, Shojae-Chaghorvand has always been drawn to the ephemeral and plays with the notion of liveness. She earned her BFA in Sculpture from Maine College of Art & Design and her MFA from Mason Gross Scholl of the Arts at Rutgers University.
