Aphrodite Desiree Navab and Chervine Dalaeli, artists who are from Iran and based in NYC, explore the gender stereotypes and pressures of Iranian Patriarchal culture.
Dalaeli photographs Navab as she transforms herself into a Hermaphrodite and follows her as she interacts with the public for several weeks. For the June 12th event at Zoraspace, Hermaphrodite will perform the exclusively male Persia ritualized exercise tradition called Zurkhaneh, "house of strength". Zoraspace is located at 315 4th Ave, Brooklyn, New York.
