Fervor, Shririn Neshat
On Her Work @ Ted Talks
Iranian-born artist Shirin Neshat explores the paradox of being an artist in exile: a voice for her people, but unable to go home.
In her work, she explores Iran pre- and post-Islamic Revolution, tracing political and societal change through powerful images of women. …Shirin Neshat is among the best-known Persian artists in the Western world.
…This experience, of being caught between two cultures, dominates Neshat’s creative work: each of her pieces offers a glimpse into the complex social, religious and political realities that shape her identity—and the identities of Muslim women worldwide.”
