About the Project

About the Project:


Inspired by some of her earliest photographic works, A Loss for Words brings Shirin Neshat’s iconic visual aesthetic into the NFT space for the first time. The series includes ten unique works, each featuring a different poem inscribed in the artist’s own calligraphy. As the pair of hands open, the words are revealed and then fall away. “The notion of one’s desire to speak, to express oneself, even if discreetly,” observes Neshat, “is created in this simple, poetic yet subversive gesture.”
