PROJECTS

Below you can see the projects I have conducted or been part of in the past

MURAL ART #2

August 6th 2023

In the heart of Sulaimaniah, Iraq, I embarked on a transformative mural project along the Sulaimaniah - Raparin Road. For 18 scorching days under 40+ Degrees Celsius heat, I painted 12 evocative murals inspired by Photo Rafiq's 1950s album, celebrating nostalgia and cultural heritage. As both muralist and assistant manager, this project, in collaboration with the Art Plus Organization, is a testament to resilience, creativity, and our commitment to making our city a living canvas. Join me on this artistic journey and let the murals transport you to another era, breathing life into our bustling streets.

Mural #1

MURAL ART #1

March 6th 2023

As the Assistant Project Manager and Mural Artist in a project by ArtPlus Organization, I had the privilege of collaborating with renowned muralist Guido Van Helen on March 6, 2023, to create a captivating mural on Salim Street in Sulaimaniah, Iraq. This thought-provoking artwork centers around the theme of memory and features a Kurdish female child engrossed in exploring photo albums. Working closely with Guido as his assistant, I had the opportunity to learn new techniques and it was a rewarding experience to be part of this meaningful art installation.

Sound Project

SOUND PROJECT

December 20th 2022

The Sound Project is an extraordinary artistic endeavor that elicits a profound response within me. Its mesmerizing presence and thought-provoking nature leave an indelible impression. Positioned meticulously, the project utilizes strategically placed loudspeakers to communicate a message that resonates deeply.

In this culture and society, the use of loudspeakers is often forbidden for women, further silencing their voices and perpetuating gender inequalities. However, the Sound Project challenges these social norms by daring to amplify the voice of a woman. It bravely confronts the cultural barriers and restrictions placed upon women, seeking to dismantle the very systems that suppress their expressions and perspectives.

Through the captivating and hauntingly beautiful voice emanating from the speakers, the project serves as a powerful symbol of defiance and resistance. It exposes the injustice of denying women the opportunity to be heard, and serves as a call to action to break free from the constraints of patriarchal traditions.

As I stand in the presence of this impactful installation, I am filled with an overwhelming sense of empathy and admiration for the courage it embodies. The Sound Project not only creates an immersive experience for its audience, but it also shines a light on the urgent need to challenge and dismantle gender-based restrictions that hinder the full expression and participation of women in society. It stands as a testament to the power of art in challenging cultural norms and advocating for greater gender equality and empowerment.

Feminine Project

FEMININE PROJECT

October 26th 2020

The installation "Feminine" in Sulaimani, Iraq consisted of a 4,800-meter-long line covered with the clothes of 99,678 Kurdish women survivors of sexual and gender-based violence.


This project was made possible with the help of the Civil Development Organization and was intended to expose the abuse that happens behind closed doors and normalize women's bodies.


The installation was composed of traditional Kurdish clothes, head scarves, skirts, trousers, tops, dresses, bras, and underwear, collected by Tara and her team after knocking on doors and talking to tens of thousands of women in Sulaimani, Halabja, and Chamchamal.


The clothes were sewn together and were hung onto the street pole line in a way that preserved their shape and displayed the items usually hidden underneath.
