Burqa is a project dedicated to the latest political changes in Afganistan.
Women’ position in context of human rights has been dramatically changed in one month.  Now every woman in the country have to be dressed according to the religious norm, hiding all parts of her body.

Sculptures are made from used unnecessary clothes which we have been collecting for a month in Italy, the cradle of fashion. It’s mostly women's clothes, as the fashion industry works for women in preference. In Western culture, women usually use a lot of clothing to attract the attention of men. While in many Eastern countries, women's traditional clothes is used VS to avoid this attention.

In this way the project clearly shows the gap between attitude towards woman and her rights to dress for herself and their dependence on male gaze in different cultures.
