Concealment

Artist Blog by Maryam Firuzi

Concealment of the human body has always been a significant consideration from the dawn of civilization up to the rise of technology. The objectivity of such issues becomes problematic when it comes to women in every region. The covering and the clothing of a female body indicate the cultural origins, social caste, and the political and religious atmosphere surrounding that woman. In the case of being an Iranian woman, it is more paradoxical. Throughout the course of history in Iran, this issue has had a lot of Ups and Downs, especially in the last century from the time women were banned from veil in public, to the time they were forced to keep Hijab as an obligation. If I am forced to conceal myself, I wish nature had done its work in the first place.
