Farwa Moledina is Not Your Fantasy

Farwa Moledina is Not Your Fantasy

Taking the politically charged imagery of the hijab, Farwa has centred a number of her works on, in her opinion, the misconception that shrouds this article of clothing. ‘Forward’ and ‘Women, Power, Protest’ both show variations on her piece ‘Not Your Fantasy’, where a girl in a hijab is shrouded in vibrant, exotic fabric and surrounded by a white expanse, sometimes peering from behind, sometimes staring into the middle distance. Look closer, and the fabric reveals the words ‘Not Your Fantasy’ stitched throughout the piece, damning you for daring to take this near inspection.
