The hairs of the artist’s legs are used as a stocking. The stockings, with all their sexual and sensual connotations are being replaced by something with a truly different, inconsistent texture and context: the long hairs of a shaggy man’s body. However, the ironic substitution is not to be seen at the first glance, but it is discovered in a more precise examination.

Working with the body, in general, is something truly unusual in Iranian contemporary art. This is still a forbidden, unthinkable territory. This work is one of the first and rare examples of an artist –especially a male one– who has directly used his naked body in a work of art. The resulting image is something innovative, an inseparable mixture of body and costume, male and female, desirable and disgusting.
