EXHIBITION IN LA CAJA BLANCA
Listen
Solo Show,
16th of June 2011

Solo exhibition composed by a series of six photographic portraits representing female archetypes in a Modern country governed by Ayatollahs and Sharia Law.

In her latest series, Tavakolian takes the viewer’s gaze into a territory of invisible tensions and surreptitious conflict which dominate day to day life in Muslim countries and are yet often overlooked and ignored by the West. Tavakolian’s universe sheds light on some of the tools used by feminists in Iran to challenge the Ayatollahs.

The very elements, which were discarded by feminists in Europe as symbols of male oppression, become threatening tools, which the authoritarian regime attempts to censor, hide and block.

 
OFF-SITE VIDEO-INSTALLATION

Date: 16th - 19th of June 2011
