Bodiless heads is a work made in 2016 and first presented at FLAM (Festival of Live Art Amsterdam). The work began with my main and long term collaborator, choreographer Setareh Fatehi and was made with another long term collaborator, sound artist Pouya Ehsaei as well as performance researcher Tara Irani.
Bodiless heads is a metaphor, a hypothesis, an imaginary state that relates to evasive, multilayered, courtesy culture. Bodiless heads is a research on missing bodies, absent bodies, bodies without organs, bodies that are neglected in the history of hierarchical structure of power perhaps because they tell us too much about the reality of their time.
In Simulacrum we question moral borders such as the depiction of skin, shared intimacy and the hierarchy of body parts through the close up framing of a CCTV camera.
