Like A PrayerCigdem Aydemir
We are delighted to announce the opening of our solo exhibition by Cigdem Aydemir, Like A Prayer on Thursday 2 July.
The exhibition runs until 13 August.In Veils on Veils, Sydney-based artist Cigdem Aydemir confronts the symbolism associated with the headscarf and how it differs from the way we visually read a hairstyle. Drawing on the experiences of Muslim women wearing wigs over their headscarves to avoid confrontation while attending official gatherings, Aydemir presents a series of portrait photographs and video work of women wearing fantastically elaborate headscarves that double as hairstyles. From pale pink and crimped to blooming orange bouffants, Aydemir’s hybrid headscarves playfully recall elements of drag and pop culture to challenge what we think we see.Briony DownesArts Writer
