Zanjir is a conversation imagined between the artist Amak Mahmoodian (1980-present) and the Persian princess and memoirist Taj Saltaneh (1883 - 1936). In Zanjir, Amak Mahmoodian draws on imagery from King name's collection from the 19th Century held at Golestan archives in Tehran and photographs she took in Iran to explore feelings of loss and separation from family and homeland. Through memories and dreams, Zanjir mythifies absence and presence. The present which continuously exists in past, and the past which continuously exists in present.
