Nature morte (work in progress)

In collaboration with Ila Firouzabadi.

The plot of the story is the life of the girl that happens in two different periods of times. One relates to occurrences, which lead her to her own death and the other is narration by herself and other people who have participated in her death. These two narrations, in a theatrical dialogue, complete each other steadily. The reason of her death derives from jealous attitudes and injustices prevailing in a religious patriarchal society.

This project is a video installation, which makes a theatre scene with two similar parts. Each part is composed of a minimal sculpture depicting a woman's head placed in a container which is made of a Plexiglas cube filled with water, giving the feeling of a human body.
