MONIR SHAHROUDY FARMANFARMAIAN: HEJLEH

ROSE ISSA PROJECTS, LONDON
14-30 AUGUST 2013

Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian's hejleh is an emotional response as well as a commemorative piece dedicated to those to whom the artist feels indebted.

With all its beauty and peace, Farmanfarmaian's hejleh uses a public art practice, with its long-standing history and its dynamic regime of meaning, to picture her conception of paradise.
