MM suppressed klein (1).jpg


Supressed [unterdrückt] Mixed media, pencil on paper 50 x 65 cm (framed) 2900,- Euro + 7 % VAT This drawing was done in Teheran in the late 90s. As it was and still is extremely difficult to express one's artistic creativity freely in Teheran, these act drawings by Maryam Motallebzadeh convey nervousness, alertness, human solidarity, and circumspection. Forecasting the struggle on Teheran's streets Women! Life! Freedom! today, the drawing attains an urgency and contemporaneity that is precious and rare.
