TAN

Elika Hedayat

Elika Hedayat’s works portray a terrifying image of a dark, certain future that awaits all of us: a promised paradise or hell, a purgatory experienced, or perhaps a present state that one needs not wait for because it is already there. In her surreal, suspended world, there is no answer to this dilemma and in her grotesque imagery, she seeks to find a way out of his inner dystopia by searching for the relation of the body to politics and ideology.
