Statement for UNCERTAINTY Conceptual Photography by Helia Jafarzadeh
Once in a while, women face over the cool, gray, and doubtful dilemmas throughout their lives that may keep them on the decision point. Those dilemmas that they have repeatedly step on the way and after the moment, they would give up. Thousand questions pass through the mind, which are totally from the own; from something, which shape the principle of existence and identity. What is essential is the erosion of the human being. Especially women, in volatile communities. That erosion which runs relentlessly on our body, sex, imagination, and ideas.
Hesitancy on the decision between two or more choices looks like elastic, which is always connected to you. Even if you are decisive and be a milestone of the fork away, but it is still possible that the hesitation restore you to the first place. Fear reigns ever in life and what women are looking for is always hidden behind the curtain of the fear. Fear of the wrong choice, makes the decider uncertain and swallow her to the shelf, which looks like a self-made individual, along with the entry and exit. The tall, gray, bare, and semi dark walls with rain prints on the stones, while being enfolded, hold the signs of light, hope, freedom, and doubt. It is not however a deadened, but passing by it, need a decision. Every woman`s purgatory is different and it is hard to visualize, but what is familiar to the eyes are the moments full of thoughts that is mindful for every single woman in everywhere.
Using long fabric, not as a hijab, veil, or cape; but also as the presenter of being connected, stretched, expanded, and tensed up into the side. Not as a garment, but also as the form creator and a movement that occurs in a heavy stillness. Sometimes, it is necessary to look such inner actions from an outer look and take the steps to the self-consciousness and also self to the surroundings.
To portray the most intimate human actions, it is required a form-based space with fine moves but precise, not dynamic! After thousand doubts and decisions, we reach the latent content and value, to our identity and essence, to what we have decided on and through it, we have been close to the border of the consciousness. A beauty that we draw of the human inside is not as elegant as the picture, but it depends on the exquisite express of the idea.
