Mahtab Khodadadi (b. 1998, Iran) received her BA in painting at the University of Guilan. In the "Common Form" series, she studies the relationship between objects and humans. The artist invites us to recognize the similarity between ancient totems and modern tools. She reduces tools such as meat grinder and sewing machine to their most basic forms to emphasize not only their similarity with totems - since both are inspired by nature - but also to remind us of the sacred and almost idol-like place these tools have in the contemporary world; an age where technological tools aren't just a symbol of something sacred but a replacement for it.
