Safavi combines multi-layered cultural and art historical references in the form of objects, materials and pictures transporting them from the resources of her own multicultural background, her travels and her ethnological research. Nature and science versus culture or philosophy, her work often borrows diverse shapes. Different references to important women artists like Carol Rama, Louise Bourgeois, Lynda Benglis and Alina Szapocznikow can also be traced in the works.
