Azita Shahidi

Falcon and Frog started as an introspection into my childhood. Born in Iran and being branded as a minority from a very young age, I was raised with the unspoken mantra of not being good enough.  Intellectually my family tried to instill in me a sense of nobility but the unspoken lie permeated my life from beyond history.  I tried to mold myself into what I assumed was better, smarter, more beautiful amongst a list that seemed never-ending. The more I added to my outer self the emptier I felt.  It was only after giving birth to my daughters that I started to reacquaint myself with the pain, accept history, and dissolve the lie.  The process was meditation in the realm of childhood fantasy, the result is Falcon and Frog.
