Alymamah Rashed's painting, ARAK KUL YAWM LI’ANAK TAHWA MA KATALT / I SEE YOU EVERYDAY BECAUSE YOU HAVE ADORED WHAT YOU KILLED, is currently on view in the exhibition "As We Gaze Upon Her".
"As We Gaze Upon Her" comes at the end of the pilot version of Warehouse421’s Curatorial Development Exhibition program, in partnership with the Bombay Institute of Critical Analysis and Research (BICAR). The exhibition attempts to expand the notion of ‘woman’, often constrained by social, cultural, and existential insecurities. ‘Woman’ and its various forms are subjective—, an idea and a body. It is malleable, imagined and exploitable, existing in a liminal space, fluctuating between challenging and perpetuating social hegemonies. A subjugated vessel, ‘woman’ is a carrier of social norms of objectified bodies, codes of family honour, gendered duties that dominate public and private space, bearers of migrancy, displacement, replacement, and labour.
The exhibition is curated by Banat Collective.
