In ‘Heart Throbs’ Shirin explores gender representation and cultural exchange between Europe and Iran as inspired by 19th century Qajar paintings. Beauty standards at the time diverged from the modern gendered convention, with men wearing makeup and women fixing side-burns to their face. Using her face as a stage, she embodies the archetype of Amrad (the adolescent male), Amradnuma (the adult male) and Fukuli (the male who mimics the look of the European dandy) in these visually striking portraits.
