We, as Iranians, are living in a time that above all thing, we seek our lost identities. Our restless actions in the past year has made us complex beings that manifest themselves in a contemporary style. Aside from the exotic qualities of the Iranian art, the Iranian contemporary will be ineffaceable from the history . For this particular reason we purposed to narrate parts of our memories of the Iranian garden , not by reparation but by recreating it in a form of a contemporary feast .In order to move upward , we have to start from the bottom. but this time we want to start from the top and reach the bottom. Rather than repairing the wall. we aim to break it down. Let's sing the anthem of our current nostalgia among these ruins. And as we can't sing an anthem alone, Lets join and sing it all together.
The reality of every phenomenon is certainly beyond its appearance. In other words, truth cannot be sighted at first, because truth hides itself behind a deceptive fake reality. This secret -this reality- is not revealed unless trust comes to the picture .Trust is what allows dialogs communication to occur and relationships will not deepen if trust starts fading away.
حقیقت هر پدیده بی شک موضوعی ورای واقعیت ظاهری آن می باشد ، به عبارت دیگرحقیقت در نگاه اول نمایان نمی شود ،بلکه در پس واقعیت دروغین ، خود را پنهان می کند . هنگامی رمزی از این راز ( حقیقت ) گشوده می شود که اعتماد صورت گیرد و اعتماد بستری فراهم می سازد که رابطه بوجود آید . این ارتباط تعمیق نمی یابد مگر اینکه اعتماد تداوم داشته باشد.

Every bride has a fantasy and this was mine...
"Lost&Found" explores one's dual relationship with the divine, where we sometimes feel lost, disconnected or in despair, and at other times, clear, loved, heard and supported.
This version of "Lost&Found" was exhibited in Tehran in January 2012 at Aun Gallery.
