Isfahan Mon Amour
2006/2007. Video with sound, 3 minutes
With reference to Alain Resnais’ Hiroshima Mon Amour, this work points at the human fragility in the zone of extreme political instability. The Nuclear Technology Centre in Isfahan is Iran's largest nuclear research centre and said to be the primary location of the Iranian nuclear weapons program. In the video this reality is contradicted by a universal, but highly personal experience of both beauty and love.
Soundtrack: Duke Ellington, extract from “Isfahan”, The Far East Suite album, 1967.
