Shirin Neshat

A mira certeira de Shirin Neshat

Captura de Tela 2014-05-08 às 00.48.06

Primeiro, a mira do olhar, muito marcante em todas as fotos da artista, e depois a mira de seus trabalhos: um foco muito bem-definido nas mulheres e na história do Irã, onde nasceu em 1957. Shirin Neshat não erra o alvo.
Um fascínio peculiar de seu pai pelo Ocidente fez com que Neshat tivesse uma educação ocidentalizada. Segundo a própria artista, o pai “fantasiava o Ocidente, romantizava o Ocidente, e lentamente rejeitou seus próprios valores; tanto ele quanto minha mãe”. A artista estudou em uma escola católica no Teerã, e em 1979, antes da Revolução Iraniana, ela se mudou para os Estados Unidos. Formou-se em Artes na Universidade da Califórnia, e depois partiu para Nova Iorque.
Em 1990, voltou ao Irã e declarou ter levado um choque diante das mudanças em seu país. Desenvolveu um interesse especial por questões de gênero, dominação, imperialismo e violência. Os inúmeros trabalhos em fotografia e filme de Neshat buscam problematizar a posição da mulher muçulmana. Para o espectador ocidental, seu trabalho pode ser um tanto difícil, visto que o islamismo é, em geral, um mistério para a maioria das culturas não muçulmanas. O valor da arte de Neshat, no entanto, está exatamente nesse diálogo intercultural e na proposta muito eficaz de sua estética: não importa a nacionalidade do espectador, o conteúdo das obras de Neshat são universais. Mesmo sem compreender os fundamentos do Islã e os escritos e símbolos persas que geralmente estão em suas fotos, Neshat extrapola a gramática.
Duas obras da artista merecem um destaque especial. O filme Mulheres sem homens (2009), baseado no romance homônimo de Shahrnush Parsipur, mostra a vida de quatro mulheres na década de 1950. Recebeu o Leão de Prata no Festival de Veneza de 2009.
