I WILL ONLY LET THE WIND HIT MY FACE
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.
