A Series of 20 digital photographs, color, 40×50 cm, 2013
This photography series is a continuation of Nightmare videos.
In this video, I engage in a process of reappropriation of images found in the media and social networks, combining them with photographs I have taken myself during a confrontation between two spaces: Iran and France. My aim is to explore the differences between these two countries in terms of individual and social freedom, as well as respect for human rights.
I am present in the video dressed in black, symbolizing my state of mourning for the lives lost during these protests. The overlay of dark images from the 2009 Green Movement protests in Iran onto the calm ambiance of my life in France, along with the use of a reversed sound of a poem I wrote myself about political violence in Iran, contributes to reinforcing the feelings of anxiety and oppression conveyed by this artwork.
