Still from Soliliquy (1999)

“Soliloquy (1999) explores self-identity and the splitting of the self. The dual projection shows a veiled Neshat roaming through an anonymous modern cityscape (filmed in Albany, New York) on one screen. On the other, a similarly dressed Neshat explores a traditional Eastern cityscape (filmed in Mardin, Turkey). As the film progresses, the opposing images of the artist highlight the differences between the Western and Eastern worlds, exile and home, modern and traditional. As the film ends, she suggests a reconciliation of these dualities by mixing choral music and chanted prayer in a hybrid synthesis of the divergent worlds.”
