2010

Created for a 2010 solo in Tehran, on the one year anniversary of the disputed elections. Inspired by the Shia flags of Muharram or the evening rituals in a Roseh. These flags secularize the symbology which would otherwise have image or text from the Quran. The flags are 48” x 96” hand stitched on velvet. Images of state violence used against Black Americans who wanted to engage in their right to vote, were used in place of the religious iconography depicting Imam Hussain and the Quranic quotes of justice. The images are specifically from Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee’s 1964 voter registration campaign to illuminate that struggle as one not less than the struggles written in Quran and as a metaphoric critique of Iran’s turbulent election process since discussion of the events on and after the 2009 elections were dangerous. Also, the images from SNCC, create a bit of a reflective mirror using the language of the state, which was to denounce oppression in the US, but cover up it’s own.
