The sculpture installation 'Enqelab' consists of the replica of a seat/chair from the former plenary meeting hall of the Baharestan Parliament Building (the first Iranian Parliamentary Building that was used officially as a legislative site: from the Constitutional Movement in 1906 until the Iranian Revolution of 1979), which has been demounted and re-installed as a script of the word ENQELAB.

A handout accompanies the work –containing illustrations and background information on Baharestan and the historical path of the parliament building.
