Existence, Ceramic, 55 × 30 cm, 2023

My three works are a story of three female friends, each of whom tries to express her suffering. The first female (silent music) loves to play the guitar, but in the Gulf society it is forbidden for a girl to play any musical instrument, as she was deprived of her hobby because of these societal customs and traditions. The second female (Existence) suffers from marginalization. In some Gulf societies, women may suffer from being neglected since the men is usually prioritized over the women, She did not find anyone noticing her in life. So this led her to remove her face and place it in her hand to try to get the attention of those around her. The last figure, thethird female (solitude) embodies a sense of taut societal constraints. In these sculptures, there is a deliberate effort aimed at liberating women and securing their strength.
