So one of the artists (like one of the established art star ones) just asked if I would like to buy her video piece/give any type of honorium. Fuck. Its not a deal breaker to show her video work bt I feel bad cuz I have no support from my institution money wise so like Ugh I can only offer like a $100 n I feel bad offering that tho cuz I’m use to that being so little n like it’d b coming out of my paycheck so like I can’t offer much more. :/ I think I’m gonna have some bakesales too. I was super sorry in the email though. She is showing in Guatemala n Costa Rica in early 2015 so she’s raising money for flights. I hope my lil bit will at least be something to add to that.

Wadjda (2013) - dir. Haifaa Al-Mansour // Saudi Arabia

Sporting a majority female cast, Wadjda tells the story of a 10-year-old girl obsessed with idea of owning a beautiful green bike she find in a toy store, even though traditional customs frown upon the notion of girls riding bikes. Nevertheless, Wadjda convinces a neighbour boy to teach her to ride in secret and begins running various small-time scams at school to raise the money for the bicycle.

Naz Shahrokh | Iranian artist based in UAE 
Spice Wall | 2010
Collected spices and herbs in plastic bags on wall
9 ½ ft x 12 ½ ft (287 cm x 380 cm)Installation at Ghaf Gallery, Abu Dhabi, UAE
"This project is site-specific to the palette of the East, as it is an investigation of spices/herbs found throughout the Gulf region, the Middle East, and North Africa. I began the process of collecting these materials in Egypt, but the source of inspiration derives from a visit to Iran in 1995 where I had for the first time experienced the mounts of spices found at the local bazaar in a town called Rascht (where my mother is from).
The process of collection of spices took many years until I was at a place where I could finally begin assembling the work. The formal framework in this project is appropriated from Ellsworth Kelly, as the vertical rainbow is inspired by his work. The plastic bags that house each spice/herb is site-specific to Abu Dhabi (UAE), as these are the bags in which one finds the local spices sold in.”-artist statement
