Mirrored Ziggurat for Underbelly Arts Festival Sydney

Mirrored Ziggurat for Underbelly Arts Festival Sydney - by artist Shirin Abedinirad

Mirrored Ziggurat was designed in August 2015 by artist Shirin Abedinirad for Underbelly Arts Festival Sydney.

Description by Shirin Abedinirad: In this installation I have been inspired by the pyramidal structure of Ziggurat, a common form of temple in ancient Mesopotamia, attempting to connect earth and sky, so humans could be nearer to god.

The Mirrored Ziggurat acts as a staircase, which seeks to connect nature with human beings and to create union of ancient history and today’s world. This installation offers a transformative view of the self.

The Mirrored Ziggurat has seven levels that represent seven heavens. For me, mirrors amplify this paradise, giving light; an important mystical concept in Persian Culture, and a medium creating an optical illusion. Visit Shirin Abedinirad
