As You Dreamt It
Over the last month or so I have been shooting a project organised by BMF called As You Dreamt It.
The ABC has also been shooting a documentary focusing on the creation of the work by myself , Toby Burrows and Juliet Taylor to be aired on the arts show in April. The exhibition will be at the the State Library with the date TBA.
This from an article I wrote for B and T
Capturing the dream of Monireh.
When Monireh recounted her dream she was visibly moved, as though the dream had just happened. As I listened I was deeply affected by the depth of her passion and sadness, and this project became real for me.
Monireh fled Iran to escape religious persecution from her Bahai faith. The Iranian government see this religion as more of a political movement, and anyone known to follow it is denied any form of education or employment. Forced to live a life of secrecy and great risk, she eventually fled to Australia.
