Shirin Neshat

In this video produced by "Out of Sync-Art in Focus," Iranian artist Shirin Neshat talks about her life and work, her reasons for becoming an artist, and her poetic and philosophical approach.
The Islamic Revolution in Iran created a break between the past and the present, leading Neshat to express in her works her feeling as an artist in exile. In this manner, her photographs, videos and short films reveal some of the social, cultural and religious codes in Muslim societies. She also addresses the things that affect her and other people, her doubts, fears, hopes and dreams. Neshat's work reflects her personality and nature; a female voice aware of her strength and fragility.
Neshat emphasizes other themes through the use of two or more films previously synchronized and simultaneously presented to generate profound visual and narrative contrasts through the use of light, sound, and black and white.
The solo show titled "Fervor and Turbulent" will remain open to the public at the Boca Raton Museum of Art until October 22 of 2017.
