These works are based on the Iranian book, “Faces of two women” by Saidi Sirjani in which he examined the 12 century Nezami’s manuscript of Leyli and Majnun. Having established himself as a great romantic poet in Persian literature, Nezami took the story of Arabic origin (Leyli & Majnun) and transcribed it as a romantic love story.

Oryan II is an exhibition that explores the relationship between History and mythology. “Oryan” in Farsi indicates the bareness of the truth, and also points to another aspect, whether the work is based on History or mythology, it will always contain traces of both.
