Excerpts from the Sisyphus Collection by Golbarg Jokar

The following images are from Jokar’s 2019 Sisyphus Collection. This project displays the hardships of being a woman with only one purpose: doing house duties. These duties include washing dishes, cooking, vacuuming, laundry, ironing, grocery shopping and last but not least, raising the kids. In this project, women wear formal dress, but the housework is integrated with their body and costume – they cannot be separated from their responsibilities. 

Golbarg Jokar is an Iranian visual artist who has formally studied painting and textile design in Tehran.
