Shirin Neshat

Shirin Neshat (Persianشیرین نشاط‎; born March 26, 1957) is an Iranian visual artist who lives in New York City. She is known primarily for her work in film, video and photography

The work of Shirin Neshat explores the connections between ancient history and the politics of the present narrated through a strong visual language referencing the primal concepts of violence, passion and love in universal history. Using a montage of poetry and images that address the paradox of beauty and violence, the artist proposes different perspectives on these collective histories.
