The Psychology of Fear

Diversity Art Forum and the Arts Council of England supported the solo exhibition of Maria Kheirkhah at the 198 Gallery in 2008.

The exhibition entitled The Psychology of Fear aimed to explore the dynamic of societies in trauma and on the verge of change, with a particular focus on Mary Shelly's novel Frankenstein. The focus was also given to the monster as an expression of otherness and vilification. The exhibition was constructed as an installation and performance involving the artist as well as trained trained actors. Click on the images to make them larger.
