The video work “My Madonna is Muslim “ is the result of my research of textile in Italy and collaboration with another artist in residency - Menal Bano. My main idea was to express the magic and strong power of textile as a medium, which can be used as a sculpting material. Having the ability to reflect light and cooperate with wind it can perform real magic. Working with textile is like sculpturing with soft and flexible liquid. You can reshape, hide, or on the contrary underline things, while playing with context - we’ve arrived in a Catholic country with a strong religious tradition, and the obvious connotation was the image of Madonna. Except our Madonna (@Menal Bano) is from muslim country Pakistan, and covering her body is a necessity and obligation, the rull woman can’t overcome.
