Art collection criticizes glass ceiling in modern world 

April 27, 2019

TEHRAN – Sculptor Amir-Hossein Delbari has created his latest collection to criticize the glass ceiling in the modern world.

The collection, which contains 15 bronze sculptures, is currently on display in an exhibition titled “Under the Glass Ceiling” at Tehran’s Mojdeh Gallery.

Glass ceiling is an intangible barrier within a hierarchy that prevents women or minorities from obtaining upper-level positions.

“The glass ceiling is a symbol of widespread discrimination against women in society and the obstacles against their development,” the gallery wrote in a statement for the showcase.

“Actually, mostly throughout the history, women have faced a ceiling which seems invisible, but is a formidable obstacle to progress,” it says.

“The sculptures depict women in different costumes. The headless figures, which mainly aim to disguise identities, are dressed in different costumes to look modern,” it adds.

“The shiny golden color of the figures is a reference to stereotypes about women in modern societies, which actually annoy women. Delbari’s sculptures actually criticize the current conditions of women in modern societies,” it concludes.

The exhibition will be running until May 3 at the gallery located at No. 27, 18th Alley off North Allameh Blvd. in the Saadatabad neighborhood.
