The haunting photographic image portrays an unforgiving landscape where a child participates in a funereal ceremony drawing upon essential elements of fire, earth and sky. While referencing modern ambivalence toward suffering at a distance, it simultaneously engages us through the natural world and universality of the human condition. Negotiating such polarities builds a foundation for understanding the complexities of an increasingly global culture. This Iranian born artist has a prestigious international resume in film, performance, photography, video and installation. Auction estimate (£7,000- £10,000).
