Shirin Neshat's photographic and video works reveal the pliant strengths of women living within the societal constructs of Islam.

Her spatial installations and photographs are imbued with poetic visuals and beautifully resonant sounds as they depict contrasting images of the men and women of Islam, dressed in contrasting white and black costumes, living amidst their religion's rules.

Includes an interview with the artist by Yuko HASEGAWA.  Artist biography and bibliography are included.
