Through her lyrical videos, Behbahani stages a contemporary cultural critique by layering and juxtaposing allusions to past and present socio-political circumstances with a language that she draws from her experience as
a painter. She carefully choreographs each frame—with attention to detail in selecting the palette—composing
a scenario with visual language that abstracts her relationships with people and poetry, pop culture
and politics. By setting a pattern for the rhythm and repetition of movement, she refines the video’s visual
and aural texture.
