[upon art] Through The Veil


I’ve been working on this project for quite some time now… It is my first time to do an installation outside my degree work!
I was always interested in exploring the world of the Islamic veil and know more about other people’s thoughts and reflections about it…
I came from a background where the majority of people wear the veil… but coming to this new environment and getting in contact with Muslim communities from all over the world got me more interested in knowing more about how others perceive the veil…
So I thought that I should try and make a documentary… and that was the starting point… but as I got more into it… and learnt more about other stuff… did an interactive installation [ inflecting space ] as part of my degree work… a new idea came into my mind… why not doing a video installation… and let us call it [ Through The Veil]…
And here I am… less than a week from the date of the installation… time is running by… still have lots to do… but…
Wish me luck…
And if you are nearby… try to pop in…
More about that later…
