Description (in English)

For Zanan Disruption artist Nassem Navab places statues of Zanan (young hijabi women in strong poses) into various public settings in Iran and US by photoshopping 3D models of these statues on screen captures from Google Street view and then uploading the images back to Google maps. With this act of "photobombing" she aims to creat dialogue around issues of women's rights:

"Through this work I reflect on the statue as a social device by turning my 3D models of Hijabi women into an object which is seen to signal cultural significance By ‘photobombing’ these public sites I’m opening up a dialogue between the parallel issues of women's rights from two different parts of the world with the use of the digital platform of google maps."
