DRESS ثوب

A hybrid of a traditional Kuwaiti dress with Palestinian cross stitch.

DRESS. Textile, embroidery, 125 x 85 cm

… The viewer must look closely at the decorative details of Dress to see how its usual Kuwaiti patterns have been replaced with designs from traditional
Palestinian cross stitch. The neck opening of this Palestinian/Kuwaiti dress has also been
considerably shrunk so much so that it becomes impossible to wear and leaves one only with
the possibilities of remaining outside or lying beneath its cover.
