50 Foot Woman

50 foot Woman is Melanie and Will Duke's contribution to 'A Festival of Imaginary Events for Tehran and London'. 

14 Iranian and British independent artists have created a festival of imagined performances on rooftops. Conceived and curated by Andy Field (Forest Fringe, UK) and Iranian artist-producer Nima Dehghani, each imagined performance is represented by a postcard beautifully designed by Katayoon Forouhesh, an Iranian graphic designer based in the UK.

Featuring the work of Amy Sharrocks, Azade Ganjeh, Barbad Golshiri, Javid S. Ghaemmaghami, Mahmoodreza Noorbakhsh, Marjan Androodi, Melanie Wilson & Will Duke, Payam Mofidi, Rajni Shah, Robin Deacon, Sarah Fe’li & Maedeh Shanehsaz, and Tim Etchells

Watch out for the postcards at events during the British Council UK-Iran Season and at Forest Fringe during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August. You can also follow the British Council via Underline throughout 2015 to find out more about the works and the artists, as they gradually reveal the pieces online.
