Where is the freedom or Depreciation of an Image (2009- 2014)

The sculpture entitled “Where is the freedom” visually references a mythological symbol that has existed in Iran for hundreds of years, most often found in literature. In ancient Iran, the cypress represented freedom and came to symbolize Iran itself; more recently this symbol has become visually prevalent. “Where is the freedom” comments on this ironic contrast between the pregnant cypress and the contemporary situation in Iran. My version of the cypress, menacingly larger than human scale and made of iron, resembles a cage. Responding to the slight shifts in the use of the cypress over time I have pushed the symbol to its limit, thus divorcing the image from its symbolic freedom.

I made this work after seven five, in new work, the form had not changed but the title of it have been changed in my mind during the times to “Depreciation of an Image”.
