In 'Written room' 1999-ongoing, Parastou Forouha covers the walls and floor of the Gallery with elegant lines of Farsi calligraphy, variously recording names and elements of words. The meaning of her script is fragmented, obscure even to those familiar with the language.

Parastou Forouhar makes works in a variety of media, including photographs, textiles, and installations, combining traditional and modern, beauty and violence to explore questions of exile, belonging, and memory.

The Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT) is QAGOMA's flagship international contemporary art event, and the only major exhibition series in the world to focus exclusively on the contemporary art of Asia, the Pacific and Australia.

APT7 continues the series' forward-thinking approach to questions of geography, history and culture and how these questions are explored through the work of contemporary artists. APT7 also marks the twentieth anniversary of the APT, presenting an opportunity to reflect on the unprecedented transformations that have occurred in Australia, Asia and the Pacific.
