Ancestor’s Dust // The Sultan Gallery

March 18, 2010

Sultan Gallery has the pleasure of inviting you to “Ancestor’s Dust,” an exhibition of clay works by visual artist Norma Isa Figueroa. Architect and historian, Figueroa derives inspirations from both fields to manipulate soft clay into tiles, imprinting them with images that seem to show up during the process.

In this exhibition, Figueroa’s work is infused with notions of the veil, and the dichotomy of being the observer and the observed, in an effort to bring an awareness of the place women are placed, or place themselves, according to different agendas. As the media emphasizes the Muslim world, the hijab, a visual marker of difference, becomes the target of political projects. Depending on the discourse, the “women of cover” are either oppressed women forced into submission, or totally free in choosing their lifestyle.

When: Opening on 23 March 2010, 7 pm – 10 pm.

24 March 2010, 11AM – 2PM and 7PM – 9PM
