"Language is a communication link between people. It promotes exchange of culture and feelings – socially, religiously, politically, emotionally etc. However, language doesn’t always succeed in accurately expressing what is cherished in our minds or hearts, thus representing an obstacle in such situations. A single word may change the state of things altogether.
Water serves as a symbol for “invisible” barriers. However hard we try to pronounce the letter, we fail to do so!!! So, we substitute the word for a sign. In many situations and whatever we may do to express ourselves, the tongue is unable to articulate any letter, thus, we resort to hand gestures or head and shoulder movements.
My word is here, close to me and sometimes, it’s there, far away…unable to feel or express my innermost thoughts and feelings.”-Artist Statement 
Alsajanjal was a Group exhibition in Bahrain on the concept of “language”. Curated by Anas Al-Shaikh, December 2010

part of HALAGA_BARTY series. Works in this series reinterpret the social environment specific to sexual subgroups in the Arabian Gulf and reflect the lived experiences of these groups post the first Gulf war (1990). In contrast to the typical western portrayal of the oppressed or hypersexualized Gulf arab originating in western discourse and orientalist analyses of arab sexuality, projects in the HALAGA_BARTY series reflect local elements from the Gulf and are created specifically for the Gulf arab viewer. The two constant focuses in the series are: Technology and Bad Taste. These works analyze the effect of technology and cyber contact on the development of its young users, as seen in Sophia Al Maria’s work. In addition, they analyze the reappropriation and digestion of global styles and trends in the gulf and the resulting economics of aesthetics.

coming out is part of the colonial project. it doesn’t translate well to nonwestern countries tbh. ppl articulate queerness differently in different cultures. to push this american “COME OUT OR U MUST BE ASHAMED” thing is nonsense and safer for certain kinds of ppl. 

Totally, although for trans people there’s this added layer of violence where we can’t safely or legally gain access to relevant medical care (hormones/surgeries) unless we come out and correctly display our gender - even in nonwestern countries this is often true bc the colonial project has so ruthlessly displaced other understandings of gender and its possible relations to health care access. You hear trans people everywhere confronting this impossible situation by asking, “Should I come out and suffer these forms of violence, or should I not come out and suffer these other forms of violence?”
