Elika Hedayat distinguishes between the bodies made available to her as models at drawing school and those she encounters in her mind. The latter are maimed, sometimes monstrous and they have missing limbs and painful expressions on their faces. Hedayat begins to search for the real persons behind the figures her imagination is projecting on the walls of her skull. She meets Iranian men whose bodies were maimed, and, thus formed by war. But also men who increase their body mass by disciplined exercise, seemingly compensating for the lack of arms and legs of the others. She is fascinated by the human, male body which she regards as potentially the result and imprint of a much bigger one – the social body.
Elika Hedayat is an artist and filmmaker born in 1979, in Teheran. She graduated at the Beaux-Arts de Paris and the Studio National des Arts Contemporains – Le Fresnoy. She is represented by Aline Vidal Gallery, and her work has been show in many art exhibitions and film festivals. Tan (2018) is her first feature-length documentary film.
