Distance 2011

Site specific installation

 

Distance, consists of a series of twenty 

square size portraits exploring the depths 

of individuals' identity and examining the 

notion of distance in its personal and 

physical meaning. Some works are 

autobiographical and very personal which

have been informed by artist's personal 

experience while others respond to more 

collective experiences.

Muse 2011

Site specific installation

 

Muse explores the depths of identity.Individuals are 

captured in direct, intimate, and almost identical poses. 

Haleh expresses their sense of identity by looking at 

the relationship between them and the viewers as well 

as the relationship between the subjects themselves. 

Within these portraits are traces of their lives: tension, 

complexity, uncertainty, reassurance, and pleasure.
