Unmute یک دست صدا ندارد

Artist Blog by Atoosa Farahmand

In the heart of Iran, whispers a proverb: ’یک دست صدا ندارد,’ where one hand may remain silent, but when joined by another, it finds its voice. This video work stands as a lyrical ode, a beacon calling communities to harmonize their differences, to blend their voices into a chorus that resonates, ensuring their collective echo reverberates far and wide. By reflecting and seeing ourselves in each other through the symbols, we can kindle the flames of resistance. This video work draws inspiration from and pays tribute to the revolution in Iran, a testament to the enduring spirit that unites us all. This project is a continuation of Not A Typical Persian Girl.
