NADIA AYARI Wshh Wshh Est: £2,600 - 3,000 Executed in 2008 Rather than viewing the burka as a politicised symbol, it is viewed in her work as a source of fascination and takes on a mythical almost fairy-tale like quality. Whilst acknowledging its suppressive status in a patriarchal society, she also takes into account its potential as a thing of empowerment for some women who can be all-seeing but not be seen themselves, giving them an almost ‘superhero’ status.
