There was some amazing work at the Abu Dhabi Art exhibition this year. 🎨
This piece is ‘Portrait of Girl on white’ by Ghada Amer, and there’s a repeating sentence in the work saying, ‘I am just a person trapped inside a woman’s body’.
Now that’s some food for thought 💭

Blue Bra Girls (2012)
Ghada Amer

The name of this piece is based on a terrible occurrence that happened in Tahrir Square in 2011 during a political demonstration. The Egyptian military beat a women senseless, dragging her on the ground and exposing her blue bra. She has become somewhat of an iconic hero for her bravery.
