Artist statement

The Female Matrix

The Female Matrix is a satirical take on the effects of expectations imposed on women. It is inspired by the patriarchal barriers that have moulded women to their liking, oftentimes casting them into a subservient role. By reducing these confining boundaries into a literal enclosure, the artwork reflects the extent to which they can disfigure a person. As opposed to a real matrix (usually an environment that promotes growth), the Arab woman’s matrix ironically condenses her into an object, forbidding her from taking up space, or simply fighting back.
