Bitter as Poisonous Flagon 

Headless observers of drowned corpses, the impossible figures revolve around themselves or hung in the suspended space from their origins; as if a collective descent happened. Frames that portray the slaughtered corpses. Opposition to gender. Figures without direction and identity and impossible. Subdued figures that sometimes remain the cattle. Showing human perplexity in the universe theater and finally showing violence and famine ... These are some of the elements used by the artist in this collection.

In Behnaz Fatemi's works, apparently passive frozen figures without direction create such a terror in the viewers as if they are aliens on the Earth. Tired figures of their own existence is slowly transforming into self-absorbed and masochist creature with no gender and passive. In fact, the transformation of the human body in this collection defamilliarizes the familiar shapes. The painter even goes beyond and also passes sexual stereotypes of male and female. As Opposition to figures often not because of gender but because the distinction between the greys are recognizable.

Here, a horrific outlook of human future has been pictured. A metaphor for the injustice that mankind could impose on themselves. Prediction of terrible condition that human will be caught in it. Desperately, we go watch the corpses who dizzily integrate to each other. And sometimes fall into thinking that we watch ourselves and because we do not deserve ourselves such a retribution, shamefully and distressfully we sigh and bend our heads.
