Mush o Gorbeh (Mice and Cat), 2012-13, Ink on Paperboard, 75 x 50 cm
The Story About Mice and Cat - literally the title is Mouse and Cat - has been written around 1370 by the persian writer 'Obayd-e Zakani. The story highlights the moral dilemma of the 'supressed' who faces the problem of his own powerlessness. The mice who fight against the domination of the cats, don't simply fail because of their weakness, smallness or fear, they lose because of the cats' 'superiority' in brutality. For the mice no alternative exists.
