"Tea has an invigorating side."
Sadighi finds inspiration for her work in pursuing her diverse interests. In addition to art, this includes music, literature, theatre and film. On her travels, she immerses herself in the worlds of other cultures and also draws on their culinary experiences there. When Sadighi visits her home country, she loves to drink tea – in Iran, the drink has a special status. "I grew up with it," said the young woman. Tea is traditionally enjoyed with your family or with guests – at breakfast, for example, or in the afternoon with dates or sweet treats: "For me, tea has an interpersonal component, an invigorating, consciousness-enhancing side." She is particularly keen on making the versatile facets of her favourite drink accessible to the younger generation. Sadighi therefore regularly hosts evenings in the gallery during which young people gather to prepare and drink tea together. This idea is further proof that Sadighi is a unique, inspiring woman who sets new standards beyond the world of art. With her mindset, she creates an unprecedented view of things and imbues them with an entirely new meaning. We are in awe of the inspirational nature of this creative curator and we are sure that this is not the last we'll hear about her.
