“Absence” is a public installation composed of a dress made of hand-dyed tracing paper, covered with handwritten text in Farsi. The main idea of making the dress is inspired by the historical paper-dress; Kaghazin-Jameh, which was a common method of protesting in Iran over the centuries. Desperate people who had experienced extreme subjugation and injustice made kaghazin-Jameh to object the ruthless authority. They wrote their complaints on a paper-made dress and wore it in public. In “Absence” the dress is the metaphorical embodiment of my discontent as a woman regarding the absence of women in our society nowadays. I installed the dress in a public park located in west of Tehran. I believe since my work is motivated by the condition of women in Iranian society it should be offered directly to the same society.
