JÎNA MAHSA AMINI
To better pay homage to the figure of JÎNA MAHSA AMINI, the Kurdish-Iranian girl killed by the religious police in September 2022 in Tehran, I relied on a poetic idea.
The narrative ploy that came to my mind was to “let down” Jina’s hair and let it flutter free in the wind. To decorate them, I placed a red flower of Fritillaria Imperialis, in the Kurdish language Gula Xemgin.
Two Fritillaria form the landscape behind the protagonist.
This plant, native to Kurdistan, is considered endangered.
