Single-Chanel video, / 08' / 2019

Green Home was filmed in Hekmat’s childhood house in Tehran, where a greenhouse has been positioned as the architectural and organic nucleus of the home. The plants are seen and treated as guardians to life unfolding there. The narration in the video is constructed as an origin myth — one that positions the perennial plants in the home as containing memories of the place and possessing the ability to transmit these memories and stories to different generations over time.
