Artist Creates Self-Portraits Wearing Burqas Made of Candy

Artist Creates Self-Portraits Wearing Burqas Made of Candy | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it
Years ago, a young lady named Behnaz Babazadeh showed up to her school in the United States wearing a burqa. Her mother had told her she didn’t have to wear it and even feared the other children would mock her for it, but the child likes her hijab and decided to wear it anyway. When she arrived at the doors, the security guard told her she would not be allowed inside unless she removed the fabric from around her face.

Emma Rister's curator insight, March 22, 2016 8:33 AM

"Years ago, a young lady named Behnaz Babazadeh showed up to her school in the United States wearing a burqa. She moved to the states at the age of seven, and in some ways, the burqa allowed her to feel in some small way connected to her childhood in Afghanistan and Iran, where girls typically start wearing the scarf at four years old. Many years have elapsed, and Babazadeh is now a photographer, but that moment will remain imprinted in her mind forever.  She uses nets, plastic sheets, and other invisible tools to sew her outfits, which can get quite messy after up to four hours of shooting.  Women, explains the artist, have used the headscarf to signify their social status for generations. For many, it’s still a means of personal expression."
