Cable Factory, Helsinki, Finland
Installation and the video work “Marriage and Pleasure II” is related to the artist’s life experience and marriage in two different societies, Iran and Finland. The installation is based on the Iranian traditional setting for the wedding. Installation contains symbolic fragments of nature as Iranian tradition and objects from artist’s marriage such as her actual wedding dress. The core of Iranian wedding installation is a mirror, which every Iranian woman is obliged to provide it for her life. Rahaa has symbolically replaced this mirror by a video, exploring the significance of her presence in different socio-cultural circumstances, also to explore concept of marriage and life in different societies.
