 "The relationships between nature and culture, between expressions of desire and censure, between body and space, are at the core of Neshat's work. In her photographs as in her complex video installations, man and woman are represented as emblematic figures, and the dialectic of the sexes summarized as a series of contradictions that Shirin Neshat confronts lucidly, avoiding judgments while also indicating possible solutions. This book documents her entire artistic production, from the first black and white photographs in which she gave voice to Iranian women by tracing onto their faces, hands and naked feet the verses of ancient Persian poets, up to the most recent color video and film works, in which ancient Persian poetry is met with specially composed music by Sussan Deyhim and Philip Glass."
