Inspired by the Islamic miniature drawings, this composition features silhouettes of both places and people. On the tapestry, the narrative is broken down into four sequences to depict the rituals behind a wedding in Kuwait.
From the bride’s clothing to the female runway style dance floor, some of the characters stand out embroidered in gold. Through this technique, the choice is made to to highlight the presence of the normally-unnoticed helpers who make the event possible to the smallest detail. By shedding light on the unseen and ''the other'', I emphasise how local traditions are often challenged by the craving for opulence.
