Iran 1998

Drawings by Parastou Forouhar

availability unknown, if interested please write an email

In her new series of drawings IRANIAN FALL, Parastou Forouhar returnes once more to the subject of the political killings in Iran. The images are based on information she has gathered about the circumstances of the killings, such as the photographs of the scene of her parents murder, as well as on what she imagines the victims must have experienced. (English)

In that sense her work is very personal. Adressing the powerlessness of victims of state repression, Forouhar makes the personal tragedy universal.
