I WILL ONLY LET THE WIND HIT MY FACE
2013

A fine art triptych shedding light unto the notions of judgements and stereotypes. It is a call for emancipation from these constructed fabric of society and placing a veil over them.

The piece talks about the preordained prejudice veiling Muslims in the world, especially the female gender as they are directly identified through the hijab. There are still unfortunate laws that disallow the hijab to cross into realms of society. Unfortunate associations cast upon the Muslim identity.

This series articulates the beauty in oneself holding their own ground inspite of these zephyr of stereotypes; notions of being oppressed, of being weak and submissive, of not able to stand abreast to men within the religion, of not being to let wind touch her skin. Ultimately, this piece emboldens the statuesque spirit of femininity in Islam, standing tall, Trumping these constant currents of opposition.
