Dawn of the Cold Season is the second edition of photographs by acclaimed performance artist, composer, singer and designer Sussan Deyhim. Each of the pieces were inspired by the poetry of Iran's greatest literally icon, Forough Farrokhzad and were originally conceived as part of Deyhim's international visual opera The House Is Black which celebrated the life and work of Farrokhzad.
For me, the most inspiring aspect of my media stage production The House is Black Media Project and the exhibit, Dawn of the Cold Season is the opportunity to introduce the great work and sensibility of the Iranian literary icon and filmmaker Forough Farrokhzad to the international community. Many Iranian intellectuals consider Forough a cultural godmother of modernist literature in Iran, but she died so young (at the age of 32) that I also think of her as our cultural daughter. A rebel with a cause, Forough spoke with awe-inspiring rawness and maturity. She was an existentialist and feminist provocateur. She was Iran’s Simone de Beauvoir, Frida Kahlo, Maya Deren and Patti Smith all rolled into one. "Sussan Deyhim”
