»Umm-al-Raml, Sand narratives«

Umm al Raml’s Sand Narratives is an augmented reality project and a divinatory journey. The fictional persona of Umm al-Raml, the mother of sand, challenges the lack of female prophecy within Islamic literature and addresses divinators’ denunciation within contemporary Iranian society. Umm al Raml will be a fictional persona that appears virtually, and embodies the stories of women who experienced spiritualism. (Jury statement by curator Johanna Hedva)

As an Iranian-Canadian artist, Shirin Fahimi explores the impact of the occult sciences and mysticism in empowering the female presence in the political and spiritual domains. Her study is informed by the mysticism literature and magic from Islamic culture in Iranian society. Since 2016, she has developed her practice into a body of works, primarily video installations and performance, presented at critically recognized art institutions such as Savvy Contemporary, Counter Pulse, and The Rubin Museum of Art.
