“Losing your parents makes you feel so extremely vulnerable. The meaning of life changes completely and it is a struggle to understand this changed world and regain your balance,” Hosseini says. She has tried to do this through her quirky boxes, filled with various knick-knacks. The artist is well known for such boxes. She began making them over three decades ago, as a way of dealing with the turmoil of the war between Iran and Iraq. Her latest boxes are an intriguing mix of abstract photographs, scientific graphs and drawings, medical paraphernalia such as bones, medicine bottles and respiratory charts, and a variety of found objects such as electrical switches, metal springs and wires, toy animals, pieces from the artist’s old sculptures, parts from broken-down machines and strands of hair.
