Today´s Poster Monday belongs to Maryam Mohtaramnejad from Theran and her poster “Eyes Shadow”. She studied in Central Islamic Azad University of Tehran and it’s an art teacher of the conservatory of the university.
Maryam tell us about her poster “This is me, over there, standing behind your barriers, I will imprison you in my eyes, and eventually, will rise up to get recognized to the extent of the world! Undeniable and rebellious…
Oppression, inequality and systematic injustice has always cast a shadow on women’s world and placed them in an inferior position compared with men in various familial, social, political, economic and cultural arenas.
Men power centrality in patriarchal societies restricts women’s attendance and their activism and thereupon marginalizes them. In these kinds of structures, the constructions of women’s identity will be nothing but an object serving men and possessed by them; it won’t accept any kind of feminine finding individuality only if it’s in dominance of a man’s power.
Therefore, femininity’s territory will always get more and more limited and its action span will be confined to the restricted and possible area defined by men.
This poster is a metaphorical symbol of a world that enlists its numerous possibilities to subjugate and ignore women and control their existences and stabilize men power domination. While, this effort is convicted to defeat and feminine power will turn this pain into a tremendous vigor for alteration of the constructions. The bystander eye in center is awakened femininity that will regain its potency at the end, and after passing made barriers of sexuality will redefine its identity as a “human”.
