ON-OFF by Foad Seyed Mohammadi
"...Both my works are about the ritual conception of the Hajj among the Muslims.
The rites of Hajj is a mandatory religious duty for Muslims that must be carried out at least once in their lifetime by all adult Muslims but after Covid-19 for the first time, this ceremony is closed. People had different reactions some say God stayed alone! by publishing a photo of the Kaaba with no one around, and others seriously look for a solution in the absence of believers. they wrote, "The Hajj will open the door to the transformational opportunity of a "virtual Hajj"..."
I liked to have critique and grotesque look about their ideas in my frames. Do we really need to think about the number of believers in the pandemic era?..."
