Azad Gallery, Tehran, 2015
In the corner of the room stands a wooden box, supported by four slender metal legs. If you take a moment to explore the installation, you’ll notice a small mirror thoughtfully placed beneath the box on the floor. Naturally intrigued, you might find yourself adjusting your position to catch a glimpse of what the mirror reflects.
Upon reaching the optimal vantage point, you’ll discover a close-up image of a woman’s lips, seemingly uttering something. Although there’s no accompanying sound, you might be tempted to read her lips, trying to discern the words she’s mouthing. After a brief contemplation, uncertain if you’ve interpreted the words correctly, you eventually move on, left with confusion.
