Bullet Revisited #37

DESCRIPTION: Photography, Unframed, Chromogenic Print Mounted to aluminum
ARTIST STATEMENT: My work documents my own experience growing up as an Arab woman within Islamic culture. Spending my childhood and adolescence in Morocco, and living as an adult in Saudi Arabia for many years, helped me gain a great understanding of the importance of architectural space in Islamic culture. In my photography, I explore this space, whether mental or physical, and interrogate its role in making gender identity while engaging with centuries of cultural heritage and artistic practices.
