The Paradise of the Past

The idea behind this project called _ The Paradise of the Past_ is symbolism of religious colours in Iran. As we know, every colour has a symbolic definition but I am interested in the transformation of these meanings when they come to a society such as Iran, where I am come from. A society which is quite paradoxical specially for women.

Moreover I grew up in a religious family, that made me to live with many contradiction topics that are merged together.

Such as freedom and limitation, tradition and modernity, covering and nudity,…

Recently living in Madrid makes these contrasts more vivid for me.

In this project I tried to express a kind of beauty which is made of that paradoxical situation, by using the religious colours that I tried to personalise them, making texture and blending the familiar tailoring and a new way of approach.
