C-print on Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta. 50 × 40 cm.
In this photos, Amina Benbouchta recreates scenes where the own artist appears with her head covered, while sourrounded by oniric objects. In this luxurious stages, beautifully decorated, with a violent elegance a woman has became an object. Amina, until now focused on painting, expresses in this proposal the position of the woman – specially in the arab world – in current societies. As it happens to Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, Benbouchta’s woman is found lost between inside and outside, and continues her permanent search of her own identity.
