Abdulaziz_ Ebtisam.jpg

I am a conceptual artist, I work in the medium of performance art. This performance documented in photograph. As an Arab Muslim woman from Dubai, who has been judged, who examines the suffering and challenges that differ from the experience of men. In this work I speak about the consumers of Western media, Muslim are constantly exposed to narratives that link terrorism to Islam. I aim to express the conflict between the individual and society. I am troubled by how I am being seen as an artist, female, Arab, Muslim and person of color in American society. Which is in conflict with how I want to be seen.
