Description

Gohar Dashti’s Stateless series comprises eight metaphorical tableaux that evoke the purgatory experienced by refugees throughout the world today. “Hoping for a better life,” writes Dashti, “they struggle in a never-ending limbo. . . . The sky becomes the ceiling and the mountains become the walls of their new homes, because Nature is the only place that promises shelter, an eternal and everlasting refuge.”
