Hangama Amiri is known by her fibre based artworks in which she often mixes fabrics such as chiffon, muslin, cotton and silk along with paper in her creative practice. She creates vibrant and intentionally constructed artworks where themes of gender, social norms, exile and memory are imbedded with personal memories resulting in what can be described as a narrative based practice.
