ANAHITA BATHAIE

The video «Cold War» depicts one of the favorite subjects of the artist: her childhood.
After she left with her parents the daily of war in Iran for France, at the age of twelve, the family home was finally a place for tranquility.
Thus, what about when the war is brought back through the television, when the violence voluntarily goes back into the home...?
What about the paradox of the situation, the gap between the distribution of the image and its reception... the indifference of her parents facing the horror of their past lives?
And what are we to make of the confrontation of the bodies after 36 years of marriage?
Is the Cold War only a television program?

Born 1973 in Iran - Lives & works in Paris.
