Menoush Aboutorabi about her exhibition:
"Underground" is a project about those who have lost dreams and visions. Those who, due to the obstacles in their environment, are driven to give up and retreat underground. They grow old underground with their fading dreams. Underground is the place where the memory of these people is forgotten. Memory is the weapon that liberates from the underground. The "Underground" project is a brief representation of her dreams, wishes and desires. The underground can be anywhere. Lost dreams and desires too. Specifically for me, this concept refers to my home country of Iran. Those in the underground are primarily the women of my country and those who created this divide. "Underground" is about those with shattered dreams and unfulfilled desires, but also the caretakers and maintainers of the system.
