Attempting to reflect the influences of history and materialism on the vulnerable non-traditional Caucasian bodies. The installation room expresses the desire to resist the constraints imposed on our lives by social forces and taboos as well by the materialism. Narrative subverts the conventions of identity display by questioning how we perceive it visually, and how meaning and value are assigned through pop culture.

This work has been funded by Salaam Cinema Baku as part of their group show “HOMETOWN WEATHER”.
