Blood Curtain, 2013
From Fabrications series; three curtains made with 8mm faceted beads and thread; 64” x 5" x 94”
Fabrications transforms, exalts and commodifies the graphic imagery of the underground culture of protest to create objects of both fine art and of the everyday. Handcrafted and manufactured replications of historical archives explore decades of collective activism and revolutionary actions both inside Iran and in its diaspora. Using as its source the collected archives of political dissent belonging to the Iranian Student Association of Northern California, (1954 to 1984), Fabrications investigates the universal connections between radical movements across times and geographies.
