Solo exhibition ‘Strange Fruit’ by Dorsa Asadi at Green Art Gallery, Dubai
In Dorsa Asadi’s Strange Fruit, the affective experience of living through the recent unrest
in Iran and its long aftermath is translated into a tripartite Dantean arc. Each part of its
narrative maps to a part of his epic allegorical poem the Divine Comedy, which served as
a vision for what would become the modern Italian language.
