nur

Nur shows a scene on the beach of the same name on the Caspian Sea in northern Iran, and takes into sight a woman who enters the water fully clothed and veiled. Our perception of the movements of the woman in the waves oscillate between free play and a (symbolic) battle, the video poses the question of the manipulability of our gaze, both by way of the composition of image and sound in the video as well as by the ideological formation of vision.
