‘An exhibit for the people.’
A Muslim woman has been archived in a museum in the not-too-distant future, to speak to visitors about her relationship with the cloth. What happens to her in a society obsessed with policing the female body, amidst the rise of Islamophobia, UK state violence, and the Prevent counter-terrorism strategy?
Evoking the dystopian feel of A Handmaid’s Tale and George Orwell’s 1984, Cuts of the Cloth is a disturbing portrayal of a Muslim woman caught in the net of the ‘war on terror’.
Cuts of the Cloth is a new piece of work commissioned by HOME especially for Push Festival 2019.
Funded by Future’s Venture.
