The Veil and The Harem : Mariano Gaich

The Veil and The Harem

2009, various dimensions

What happens if representations of veiled persons interlock with images
influenced by Western orientalism of the 19th century?

Delacroix´s harem painting sets the scenery for a series of pictorial reworks
dealing with today’s colonialist mechanisms of reproducing North Africa´s female
stereotypes in the field of oppression and sexual empowerment.

Through the intervention of painting over, the micro society of women
in a harem is presented as a female reunion, where differences in social class,
sexuality and ethnicity interrelate with each other. Thus the conceptual
framework of the single subject as we find it in Western 70’s feminism is taken
to a broader level of pluralistic subjectivity.
