That Has Been Bothering Me the Whole Time

An experimental set-up with a tragic fate.

The film opens with an extreme close-up of the rustling of a dark material and the sounds of deep breathing, from what transpires to be a dancing body.

Artist Arash T. Riahi says the work poses a utopian suggestion: “what happens if you let a woman in a burqa do a performance which could never be allowed to show publicly?” At the end of the show, the set-up brings us back to reality.
