Locket stuffed with many cut ID photos of Iran-Iraq war superheroes in the shape of heart - assembled on a book, ornamented by dentelle belonging to the war time.

Saeed Ensafi's assemblages reveal the untold facts of the most challenging Iran-Iraq war that are covered beneath a lace curtain just like the showcases of the Martyr's graves. The artist's use of decorative objects is a reconstruction of the frustrated feelings, which appeared without being told just as the showcases on Martyr's graves.

There was a portrait of the martyr inside these glass boxes with his personal belongings and some decorative objects such as plastic flowers with a lace curtain covering the whole box - covered to be seen and not to be seen. Saeed;s assemblages are also made to be seen and not to be seen, in the style of the installations in the showcases of martyr graves, the untold facts of war are being encompassed inside Saeed Ensafi's assemblages.

The title of this series, "Smile Brother", is derived from a well-known slogan, which was written on signboards throughout the conflict zones of Iran-Iraq war, in order to raise morale of soldiers. Read less
