Bodyletter

Forouhar recognizes language and text to be potent forces of human enslavement and fall from grace. Man can invent anything in language and subsequently allow that invention to destroy life itself. In “Written Rooms” and “Body Letters,” she disables the meaning of words and releases them as pure form. The images of ping-pong balls or whirling dervish dancers give the impression that both words and language are too fluid to be given the authority on Truth. Abbas Daneshwari
