Description

Shahrzad Darafsheh is a 36 year old artist battling cancer in Tehran. This complex book, in a limited edition of 300, is a window into her life and experience.

This book operates on several levels; as a chronicle of her journey through a sickness, an object made of various materials of different opacities evoking the fragility of skin, obscuring and revealing life’s scars. As an experiment in storytelling – when read in Farsi, from right to left, the result is very different from that which an English reader will experience: it is a bilingual project that provides a view into life in a country which many of us have no knowledge of, or visibility into.

Each copy comes in a drawstring pouch.

Softcover, perfect-bound, colour.
