The Sin by Maryam Attar – Mixed Media on fabric, and it is ready to hang.

Artwork statement:

The narrative of this artwork is a poetic, feminine, and political statement, reflecting the
experiences of a displaced person in search of belonging in the Australian context.
Drawing inspiration from the provocative poem The Sin by the feminist Persian artist and
poet Forough Farrokhzad, this artwork boldly challenges social conventions and
celebrates the freedom of expression, particularly for women in a restrictive society.
The Sin by Forough Farrokhzad openly describes a carnal engagement and its impact
on readers and critics, both within and outside Iran, lies in its unapologetic defiance
against the societal norms and condemnation typically imposed on those who dare to
commit such sins, especially if the transgressor is a married woman.
This artwork portrays a rebellious female figure, characterized by a powerful gaze and
posture, while notably lacking a mouth—an intentional symbol signifying the ongoing
struggle for women’s rights and freedom of speech in Iran. Fearless and proud of her
actions, the figure boldly displays her uncovered head and shoulders as an act of protest
against the oppressive regime of Iran. Her naked body, adorned with a bandage bearing a
printed excerpt of the poem, serves as a powerful reminder of the strength and resilience
of those who challenge the status quo.
The image transformation within this artwork seeks to convey the concept of
fragmentation, drawing inspiration from Persian architecture and tilework. By juxtaposing
elements of Persian art and Farrokhzad’s rebellious poetry, this piece invites viewers to
contemplate the multifaceted layers of defiance, resilience, and the pursuit of freedom in
the face of societal constraints.
It stands as a testament to the enduring spirit of
those who dare to break free from societal expectations and embrace their own truths,
even in the most challenging circumstances. Through this artwork, we invite you to explore
the complex interplay of individuality, freedom, and the quest for belonging in a world that
often seeks to confine and suppress.
