Facial Freedom, 2011. Lint, cotton, buckles, elastic. Dimensions variable.
Facial Freedom aims to highlight the gross discrimination against Iranian women as superficial and absurd. Whilst engaging in the masculine attribute of facial hair, these hand-sewn wearables maintain distinctively feminine qualities. Particularly suited to the Iranian wearer, she can now enjoy the life of a socially acceptable individual; all in the comfort of the latest in gender equalising facial wear.
