Past Exhibition / Hayv Kahraman
Pins and needles
October 28 - December 20, 2010
For her debut solo exhibition in the UAE, Kahraman presents yet another powerful series this time focusing on one of the divisions in the field of feminist anthropology: the examination of gender maturity by the separation of the biological from the cultural factors which control human behavior and identity.
By adding an element of subtle cynicism to this each work incorporates the innocence of childhood games that anchor on the concerns of conditioned behavior and gender roles. To view a trailer by ikonoTV of the works, please see here...
