Art & Design
This work is a statement of resistance and solidarity with the Iranian women who defied the oppressive regime by removing their veils in public. I depict a woman with loose hair, a symbol of freedom and defiance, but covering her eyes with the word “subversive”, suggesting that her identity is erased and criminalized by the authorities. The work is inspired by the slogan “woman, life, freedom” chanted by the protesters. This work was exhibited at the exhibition “Iran Rising” in Georgetown DC in November 2022.
