Peppa is an artist and educator who investigates sanism, with focus on the pathologizing of racialized and gendered identities. Her work activates histories, mythologies, and experiences regarding interpretations of insanity and gender. Using video, narration, sound, and lighting, she builds worlds of fantasy, pleasure, and pain. Avenues in her research include queer Iranian history, the Global Mental Health industry, the architecture of confinement and institutional space in the United States, the history of hysteria and the development of the asylum in Europe, and intercultural mythology. Her current projects join personal narrative, animation, and installation to tell stories that de-pathologize lived experiences.
