Sokhanvari's first solo exhibition in Denmark presents 21 miniature portraits of previously famous Iranian women, including Vida Ghahremani, the first woman to be kissed in close-up in an Iranian film, Forough Farrokhzad, a controversial, modernist poet, and the prominent writer Simin Dāneshvar. The exhibition's title, Rebel Rebel, refers to David Bowie's cult song from 1974 and is a tribute to the portrayed women pursuing their careers in a society that followed the art and style of the West, but not its freedoms.
