Deepression

Deepression shows a woman on a swing who seems entirely lifeless and slumped over. Only the wind and the penetrating noise of the swing’s chains can be heard. The video symbolizes the state of standstill and hopelessness in light of the social and political reality in Iran. Shahraf Jahan is a painter, video artist, and co-director of the Azad Gallery in Teheran.
