Trembling monuments are a series of soft sculptures that aim to explore the relationship between body, psyche and the geographical and cultural context in which these two live.
By juxtaposing Farsi letters with female bodies (or part of), these monuments tend to visualise experiences such as love, memory, nostalgia and an unstable identity. The traditional act of stitching and embroidery helps to bring more intimacy to the works.

20 APRIL – 3 MAY
The prison takes isolation and separation to the extreme. Once imprisoned, the prisoner is ‘killing time’ rather than spending time. Time inside a prison is different to time outside a prison. In this respect the prisoner can experience a suspension of the present, a loss of time. To ‘kill’ time in a confined space can be horrific. Nowhere is this experience of time more accentuated and more horrific than on death row.
Shocked Spirits is an exploration of time through an investigation of death-row prison films, particularly those that use the electric chair as a form of execution.
