    The National - The Iranian artist Pouran Jinchi takes dark inspiration from the writer Sadegh Hedayat

    The solitary owl, which exists in the shadows and cares not to socialise even with its own kind, represents death in many cultures. In The Blind Owl, a novel written by Sadegh Hedayat in 1937, the symbol takes on an even darker level. When the opening line talks of the “sores in life that, like a canker, gnaw at the soul in solitude and diminish it”, it is difficult to imagine it going anywhere else. Yet, when Pouran Jinchi picked up the novel a few years ago, she decided to deconstruct it, turn it into visual art and focus on the spiritual message in the pessimistic plot, which is one of self-discovery.
