Shirin Neshat, Woman of Allah, the veil and the female presence in a male dominated culture #005

Bergos Passion

In this very special episode we had the greatest pleasure to talk to visual artist and photographer Shirin Neshat. Her art has found immense international acclaim, covering topics from the contrasts between Islam and the West, antiquity and modernity and femininity and masculinity. Often bridging all of the mentioned above! She has been awarded the Silver Lion at the 66th Venice Film Festival and the International Award of the Venice Biennale in 1999.

Turbulent de Shirin Neshat - 3 minutes pour une œuvre

Euradio

Julie Le Gallais vous propose de fermer les yeux pour visualiser l’oeuvre : Nous sommes dans le noir, et faisons face à deux écrans qui s'opposent, la dualité des genres est centrale dans cette installation. Le silence s'installe puis tire sa révérence pour laisser place au chant bas et vibrant d'un homme au pantalon noir et à la chemise blanche. Il s'approche d'un micro et tourne le dos à un auditoire exclusivement masculin pour faire face à la caméra. Le chant d'amour perse nous transporte. Ce chanteur à la voix puissante fixe l'écran d'en face, et ainsi nous amène à tourner les yeux vers ce dernier. Il y apparaît une femme voilée, toute de noir vêtue, tournant le dos à l'écran du chanteur et faisant face à une salle de théâtre vide. Ainsi, dès le début du film, l'opposition est conceptualisée dans les couleurs (le noir et le blanc), le plein face au vide (applaudissement et chaises vides), et le bruit face au silence.

Shirin Neshat – Land of Dreams #Venezia78

Fred English Channel » FRED English Podcast

PODCAST | Matt Micucci interviews Shirin Neshat, director of the film Land of Dreams. To listen to the interview, click on the ► icon on the right, just above the picture A conversation with Shirin Neshat about her talest feature, Land of Dreams, presented in the Orizzonti Extra section of the 78th Venice Film Festival. Neshat is one of the foremost multimedia artists of our time. This is the Iranian filmmaker’s second feature directorial effort and her first American production. Surrealist, dystopian but also intimate and autobiographical, Land of Dreams is an exploration of the powerful nature of dreams and the subconscious, and an investigation on what it means to be a free American. In this interview, Neshat talks about the origins of this idea, its autobiographical elements and some of the characteristic traits of her art. Land of Dreams is a political satire set in the near future where America has closed its borders and become more insular than ever. The story follows Simin, an Iranian American woman, on a journey to discover the core of what it means to be a free American. She works for the most important government agency of her time, the Census Bureau. In efforts to understand and control its populous, the government has begun a program to record the citizen’s dreams. Simin, one of the Census Bureau’s lead dream catchers, is unaware of this devious plot. She herself, being among the last immigrants allowed into the country, is torn between her appreciation for America’s acceptance, compassion for those whose dreams she is recording and a truth she must find within. Playful and poignant, Land of Dreams acknowledges the greatness of the American experiment while offering a warning beacon for what could come.

Conversation 022: Shirin Neshat

ODDA Conversations

In light of troubling cultural changes across America, renowned artist and filmmaker Shirin Neshat took her camera and headed West. In the quiet desert plains of New Mexico, Neshat brings her curiosity, her empathy, and her poetic imagination. As an Iranian-born artist and immigrant, she seeks this convergence of the personal and the political; this is also a personal process of falling back in love with the country that she once cherished. “Land of Dreams” marks a new kind of collaborative project for Neshat, but in the faces of all she met there is a clear theme: Shirin Neshat came to listen.
