At Home, Chilling
‘At Home, Chilling’ is a series of photographs that target cultural stereotypes. Each photograph shows the artist herself dressed in Arabic gear and superimposed on an idyllic Danish setting. The series comments on issues of belonging and cultural differences. Yet, in the contrast between the subject and its context, something else is achieved. The photographs trivialize our notions of the “other”. In the series, both sides of the equation end up being compromised exposing the banality in our preset concepts and cultural standards. The aim of the project is to reflect the political climate of our present day and bridge an ever widening gap between East and West and start a new constructive dialogue.
