Following the success of the installation « For Mahsa Amini » at the Woman Life Freedom exhibition at the Irving Arts Center (Texas, USA), Hind Chaouat will now join the Arts Fort Worth gallery.
The visual artist will showcase an installation consisting of a photograph, « Kahina, feminist warrior », the video « Flawlessness » and a quote from Simone de Beauvoir. By putting the three exhibits in conversation, she pays homage to Mahsa Amini, the young Iranian martyr, a modern-day heroine, who through her act of rebellion, was the catalyst for the Iranian revolution.
A blood-red painted wall was designed for the installation at the request of the artist. On it, Chaouat inscribed this famous Simone de Beauvoir quote:
“Never forget that a political, economic or religious crisis will be enough for women’s rights to be called into question. These rights can never be taken for granted. You must remain vigilant throughout your lives.“
