Vaziri’s recent works depict ordinary citizens who are simultaneously subjects and objects of capitalism: we are political agents of social transformation, yet inevitably subjected to socio-economic inequalities that demand that we forego our ideals for the sake of survival. In this duality and paradox of our daily life, do we need empathy or critique? In her work, the aesthetic lies exactly in this paradox.
