Ali Tahayori’s interdisciplinary practice ranges from conceptual photography to the moving image, mirror works and installation. Tahayori uses archival materials, narrative fragments and performative modalities to explore themes of identity, displacement, and belonging.

After Everything Has Been Said
consists of a series of photographs and a video installation depicting a traditional grief ceremony in various stages performed by Ali Tahayori. The inspiration behind creating this work came after Ali was informed of the murder of a young Iranian gay man, Alireza Fazeli, in May 2021. Alireza was kidnapped and killed by family members after discovering evidence of his sexuality. He was supposed to fly to Turkey to join his partner just days after the event in the hope of applying for asylum in Europe. The video performance displays the traditional mourning ceremony specific to a region of Iran where Alireza was originally from.
