#milesawayfromcivilisation is a collage series that calls into question some of the shaky values purported by so-called ‘liberal’ western democracies. The pieces in this series form a satirical Guidebook, that aim to expose the redundancy and blatant racism behind #France’s recent burkiniban.
These works are dedicated to a woman called Samia, who was forcibly made to undress herself this morning on a public beach in France. Samia wasn’t wearing a ‘burkini’ - she wasn’t even going for a swim. The fact that her arms, legs and hair were covered were proved to be sufficiently threatening to have her forcibly undress herself in public.- © Mouna Kalla-Sacranie, ig: mounaks.art
