Batoul S’Himi
"World’s Pressure," 2009

[عربي] [English] [italiano]

Batoul S’Himi re-imagines both everyday objects and natural materials including kohl and cinder in "World’s Pressure." The artist recycles and refashions these objects into tools of resistance engaged in socio-political issues. S’Himi adopts a direct language that ironically appropriates methods employed in official propaganda and populist media. From its origin as an object so familiar to women in Morocco, the pressure-cooker, for example, becomes restructured into a strangely open form.
