In this exhibition, Oreo performs as an Iranian nationalist who erroneously identifies as Aryan. In Iran and among its related diaspora, it is a part of the national discourse of identity that Iranians are Aryans, and this myth is permeated in present-day visual cultural and political discourses. In her new work, Rah uses social apps as a “relational sketchbook” where she performs as Oreo to critically examine nationalism in the digital age by appropriating hashtags, visuals and symbols used by nationalists from around the world. With this exhibition, Rah inspires an urgent consideration of the ethics of engagement on network technologies.
