Samaneh Atef is with child. And this child is herself. The adult, the mother, is realistic, painfully faced with the world that surrounds her and that forces her to live in a difficult routine made up of interdictions, taboos, blame and denial of the Self. The child bears all the hopes of freedom and tolerance. All that the mother wants and dreams to experience. Samaneh Atef’s drawings express this struggle and show, sometimes violently, her questioning and her search for a place in the sun.
