‘What’s in Your Head?’ is the name of a solo exhibit by Iranian painter, video artist, filmmaker and photographer Samira Eskandarfar which is currently underway at Azad Art Gallery in Tehran.

“Most of the time I know what’s in my head. I look at them, sort them out and organize them. But sometimes I don’t know what’s going on in my head or what exactly is in there. I like it when it happens,” Eskandarfar, 37, said in an introduction to her exhibit, according to

“It was at such wonderful times that I created the drawings. I put the soft and slippery tip of the marker on the glossy surface of the cardboard and let it slide, freely and quickly. I did it when I had no idea what was in my head,” she said.

“I let it happen. I let all those unknown things on my mind to slide on the cardboard to see what’s going on in my head,” Eskandari added.

The exhibition features a collection of drawings and paintings through which visitors may be able to watch the inner processes of the artist’s mind.

‘What’s in Your Head’ will run through July 25. Visiting hours are from 4-8 pm. Azad Art Gallery is located at No. 5, Salmas Sq., Golha Sq., Fatemi St.
