Past Exhibition / Huda Lutfi
November 13, 2008 - January 08, 2009
Zan’it Al-Sittat is an exploration into the city of Cairo, and more specifically, the visibility of women in Egyptian culture and society.
Both historian and artist, Lutfi is a bricoleur. She collects disparate images and manipulates them to re-invent her personal vision of Cairo, its histories and events. In doing so, Lutfi simultaneously comments on the political relevance of her home country, lifting old feminine icons from history and giving them new life by re-contextualising historic time lines, creating hybridised, timeless female figures.
