Projects > Anonymous Iranian Artist - 2005

The Anonymous Iranian Artist was a performance piece in which the artist sat silently behind a desk labeled as "Anonymous Iranian Artist - Circa 2005" as a museum relic, and copied various news bits about Iran from American news papers in Persian calligraphy. The words were untranslated, copied phonetically to make them incomprehensible to both Farsi speaking and English speaking spectators.
