EXHIBITON DATES : JULY 8- AUG 10
Q& A with artist, Shirin Towfiq
Why soft and sensitive ?
Soft and sensitive was made from a place of just being tired and aware of everything that’s going on right now in our society and not wanting to be angry anymore and shifting to this place of becoming vulnerable.
What's the significance of bread? How does it convey the message of social change?
Bread is historically thought of as a basic human right in almost every culture. A comfort that everyone deserves. Nowadays, bread is easily accessible in our society through the industrialization of food production; it’s not “bread” that we need anymore, now the basic human needs are immaterial—equality across all people, access to education, justice.
How does this series relate to you personally? Do you see the communal and universal connection from that? If so explain the relation.
The series contains struggles and realizations/awakenings, this is naturally a part of my life and all of our individual and social lives, as humans we are highly affected by others and our environment. The series is not meant to show one specific social problem or solution but to suggest many different readings.
