Parastou Forouhar: Funeral. 2003

Installation: 22 office chairs, fabric

22 office chairs - "seemingly neutral symbols of generalized modern age officialdom" - are covered in colorful fabrics. That, which for the unknowing appears to be a bright, ornamental set of chair covers is for those, who can read Persian, a lament on the death of the Shiite martyr Imam Hossein.
