Shirin Neshat, 56, Visual artist, born in Iran lives in New York.
"I embody the clash between traditional ideas of style versus what modern westernized design is. I like them both but I can never let go of things that reminds me of something that is really remote. I have been very interested in things that are beautiful by accident. Often in airports we see those not very wealthy Indian women […] they come so elegantly and not even conscious of it. To me, THAT is style." - Shirin Neshat
