„What do you expect to come out of my pocket

Other than a white piece of paper?

Yes, there are words on it

But written in white ink.“

(Maryam S.)


„white paper white ink“ is new work in development. It is based on the texts of a young Iranian women who has come to my country less than two years ago as a teenager.

The inspiration for this new work is the beauty I find embodied in her: the beauty of all humans, to keep their grace, dignity and courage in a situation of oppression, and speak up for what they stand for whenever they can.
